Can U.S. automakers keep up with this Chinese auto boom?

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.
