The guest on this week's nationally syndicated Motley Fool Money radio show is Ron Adner, an award-winning professor and author of the new book The Wide Lens: A New Strategy for Innovation. In this audio segment, Adner analyzes the electric car and shares why he believes the Chevy Volt and Nissan Leaf are doomed to fail. He goes on to discuss why he thinks the company to watch is not a traditional automaker like Ford or General Motors, or even electric-car manufacturer Tesla Motors. Instead, Adner believes Better Place, with key partners including General Electric, is the company to bet on when it comes to electric cars.
