Comments on: GM and Germany in Opel chicken run http://blogs.reuters.com/commentaries/2009/08/05/gm-and-germany-in-opel-chicken-run/ Now raising intellectual capital Sun, 08 Nov 2015 08:31:30 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: skip http://blogs.reuters.com/commentaries/2009/08/05/gm-and-germany-in-opel-chicken-run/comment-page-1/#comment-1786 Fri, 07 Aug 2009 02:34:08 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/commentaries/?p=2148#comment-1786 The Germans have one goal in mind: do what is good for Germany. Even if it drives the company into the ground, or (as in this case) forces the company to make a terrible business decision like hand its brands and intellectual property to a competitor, the Germans don’t care. They dont care about Belgium, they dont care about Spain, they dont care about Britain.

They are deluded: once the Russians grabbed the technology they want to set up their own Opel factory, they will cut loose the German operations. Magna will be in for a wild rodeo ride through all this and may well end up in the dust itself.
