    Would love to hear any comments from the UAW on this outsourcing. If Ron G. had any conviction at all, he would argue to bring that manufacturing to the US. Of course, no one can make a car here and sell it for $4,000, which begs the question: How cheap of a car can we build here and still make a profit? But no one wants to go down that path, since the math proves it is unprofitable to do so for micro and mini cars. The UAW doesn't want to have that discussion; they just want to "prevent outsourcing of American jobs". Not that I disagree with that sentiment--we have outsourced too many jobs. But unfortunately labor unions have no credibility any more, even if we need them now more than ever.
