Did you change a broken belt or just a worn out one?
No real surprises here. Glad to see the Audi Allroad back on the positive side, anda win for Kia...lotta meatballs for Cadillac, too bad. Corvette...status quo. Audi and Kia---two brands rise from the ashes! See, GM, it CAN be done!
All very nice cars, but the 2016 Accord seems to win the most praise, not only for being a good car, but being a good car that is also interesting to drive. The Maxima has better performance, but costs a fair amount more as well.
I think the situation in California is, in fact, a matter of 'some doing well, some doing badly". The point of the SacBee article is, I think, that the California economy is massive and always has the potential to rev up. California, no matter what its status, has a future. Some states definitely do not. Hi-Tech, entertainment, agriculture and tourism will drive California long into the foreseeable future. The auto industry? Not so much. I bet even Tesla folds up the car department and goes into the battery business.
I wish media would stop using the term "RE-distribution of wealth", as if the initial distribution was somehow fair and just. If the CEOs can getg "fat" in good times, and the stockholders can get "fat" by basically doing nothing at all, why can't the workers get "fat" by having a bigger cut of the pie? In the reverse scenario, when times are lean, the CEOs lose nothing, the stockholders go back, at worst, to baseline break-even, and the workers get hosed. Why can't we distribute profit and loss on a more equitable basis? We all get a fair profit, we all take a fair "hit". What man on earth "needs" a 150 million dollar pension plan?
