General Motors a lesson in government overreach

The thing to remember about General Motors, which just announced plans to close three plants in Ohio, Michigan and Ontario, cutting about 14,000 jobs, is that the company doesn’t operate under capitalism. Its statements have to be analyzed politically, not financially. In capitalism, the government’s role is limited to setting the rules of the road so innocent people aren’t killed in somebody else’s crashes. But in the system in which General Motors operates, the government’s role is to create a...

In 1988, California’s politics were different than they are now, and the right Republican candidate could win a majority here. Republican George Bush carried California in that election — the last time a GOP presidential nominee won the state — defeating Democrat Michael Dukakis in every Southern California county except Los Angeles. The region’s affection for Bush was partly attributable to the fact he was vice president under former California Gov. Ronald Reagan. But it was largely a tribute t...
