Ford Could Have Made A Better Effort To Sell Smaller Cars

The Ford Motor Company announced major cutbacks today. Many people are going to be laid off. A big reason Ford gives for the terminations is the seemingly permanent high price of gas. Yet it was Ford that was at the forefront of pushing huge gas-guzzling SUV’s and huge gas-guzzling trucks. These vehicles have never been ecologically, or, as is now apparent, commercially sustainable.   

Ford pursued a rotten strategy. Regretfully, many Americans bought into that strategy.
