Detroit gets a bailout

Tuesday, December 09, 2008

Democrats in Congress and the President will come through with cash to save the automakers. Plus, help us pick a new name for the position of "Car Czar"
"They are willing to try and do whatever Washington requires of them to get this cash."
— Bill Vlasic on the auto industry
Under a plan being hammered out by Congress and the Administration, GM and Chrysler will get $15 billion in emergency loans. In return, they've agreed to close oversight by the federal government and pledged to get rid of their private jets. And, what should we call the "Car Czar"... Motor General? Auto Crat?

Guests:

Bill Vlasic and Todd Zwillich

How does someone go about applying for the job of the car czar? I think my husband would be a very good person for this job. He has experience working in the public sector to disburse funds for grants. He has his MBA but is currently teaching English marketing and business in a Chinese university.
