What China's Massive Auto Boom Means for Detroit

Some predictions have the Chinese auto market growing by 144% in the coming years. In this video, Brendan Byrnes discusses which auto companies are most likely to benefit. Right now, he says, General Motors and Volkswagen have substantial market share and are likely to expand on their stakes. Ford isn't as big in China as GM or VW are, but it's investing heavily and won't go away quietly. With a decline in Japanese auto sales stemming from the country's current anti-Japan attitudes, American companies could benefit, despite some headwinds related to regulations and infrastructure. Check out the video for further details.

    It's bad enough competing with workers who just make little or nothing per hour, but then they bring their cars into America with no tarrifs. Congress doomed the American jobs market when they passed the free trade agreements, our forfathers believed in fair trade, or tarrifs to protect our workers, and the tarrifs also went to run the government,which lightened the tax burden. Seems funny in our modern age our politicians are dumber than politicians 200 years ago.
