Chrysler is for sale: GM’s offer rebuffed, apparently. Magna and Cerberus are vying for it, with more components for sale. GM is apparently in the fray for assets. Ford is behind GM in globalization, is trying to restructure capital with convertibles. GM is still moving to leaner more profitable. UAW is in trouble Toyota is winning What’s Going to Happen?:  What’s Going to Happen? What happens to Michigan? What happens to my portfolio? What does an auto downturn do to the National economy? What about the UAW?
