GM Chief Financial Officer Chris Liddell said the automaker is making money in Brazil and China, struggling in Europe and somewhere in between in North America.
The old line is: What is good for General Motors is Good for America! Now,Brazil and China are to be added for GM in the 21st century. Here we detect Sino-American Economics from the happenings.
Page A18: Kate McClintic wrote to the Editor: "I am one of many citizens who voted for President Obama because we believed he was a serious thihker who would apply his abilities to the relentless and stress-filled tasks of the presidency. I, for one, am grateful to him for taking on the burden. It was Abraham Lincoln, not a barrel of laughs during his demanding presidency, who said "People are about as happy as they make up their minds to be." I am constantly impressed that Mr. Obama can still keep up that winning smile and charming conviviality, despite the often oppressive dilemmas he was elected to address." How true as I see such thoughts as well!
I would endorse the same rationale above and I have sent my blogs apropos of the Equation for Happiness below:
Happiness == Material Consumption + Intellectual pursuit + Spiritual Satisfaction + Good Health as the numerator over Desire as the denominator.
