According to eMOTION! REPORTS.com sources, Mr. Wales and other GM executives have played -willingly or unwittingly- into the most reprehensible example of (perhaps) illegal transfer of wealth, technology, production process and economic stability at the DNA level in the history of the world. And of greater concern, a concomitant compromise of US national security through provision of sensitive technologies -like the neodymium magnets pioneered by former GM subsidiary Magnequench which was itself inexplicably purchased by the Chinese in the same time frame GM resumed sales in that county- with weapons applicability to China's military. "No, Mel Brooks (History of The World, Part) is not laughing, nor is Ford amused amidst recent reports of an F-150 "commercialization" by a Chinese car firm", says Stokes. "And yes, one should be worried: The Once Great Britain learned the hard way as it woke up to the fact that world renowned brands spawned within its borders were now owned by offshore others, while reducing its manufacturing base capacity to pre-industrial levels."

Euphemistic Audacity: eMOTION! REPORTS.com Responds to GM Shanghai's Kevin Wales' Praise of China's "Innovation Through Commercialization"

  1. 1. Euphemistic Audacity: eMOTION REPORTScom Responds to GMs Kevin Wales Praise ofChinas "Innovation Through Commercialization"Posted February 6th, 2012 by GHHLLCAnalysis Says What is Euphemistically Called Chinas Process of "Innovation Throughcommercialization" to Accelerate Technology Prove-out and Utilization, is Simply Considered, byEvery Other Industrialized Society, as Theft, Industrial Espionage, Illegal Acquisition of IntellectualProperty, Patent Right Infringement and Unfair Trade Practice by Government Subsidization.Shanghai, Peoples Republic of China., February 6, 2012 - (PressReleasePoint); - eMOTION!REPORTS com, an automotive/aerospace industries research and analysis site founded in 2001 with amission to target professionals within the academic, media and government sectors, has just gone live,initially on its blogs, with an analysis in response to a recent interview conducted by the McKinseyQuarterly with GM China President and Managing Director Kevin Wales. "In this age ofinstantaneous communication accorded through cyberspace and cellular-based data conveyance, it isconsidered wise to weigh ones words carefully before pressing send", said Publisher Myron D. Stokes,an award winning, former Newsweek, Newsweek Japan and Newsweek International specialcorrespondent and industry analyst. "In acknowledgement of that wisdom, ERs global team ofjournalist/analysts -some of them among the best within academia, NGOs and government- did indeedweigh the following words, and the GM activities that induced them, then wondered why we didnt hitthe "send" button within minutes of reviewing the interview conducted with GM Chinas Kevin Wales."What Wales euphemistically calls Chinas process of "Innovation through commercialization" toaccelerate technology prove-out and utilization, is simply considered, by every other industrializedsociety, as theft, industrial espionage, illegal acquisition of intellectual property, patent rightinfringement, unfair trade practice by government subsidization... In other words, economic war on amassive scale, coupled with an endgame strategy epitomizing zero sum. "Grammatically", Stokescontinued, Innovation through commercialization should be ranked right along with "ethniccleansing" in sheer euphemistic audacity."
  2. 2. GM China President and Managing Director Kevin Wales Discusses China Strategy at AutomotiveNews China Conference Image: GM ChinaAccording to eMOTION! REPORTS.com sources, Mr. Wales and other GM executives have played -willingly or unwittingly- into the most reprehensible example of (perhaps) illegal transfer of wealth,technology, production process and economic stability at the DNA level in the history of the world.And of greater concern, a concomitant compromise of US national security through provision ofsensitive technologies -like the neodymium magnets pioneered by former GM subsidiaryMagnequench which was itself inexplicably purchased by the Chinese in the same time frame GMresumed sales in that county- with weapons applicability to Chinas military. "No, Mel Brooks (History of The World, Part) is not laughing, nor is Ford amused amidst recent reports of an F-150"commercialization" by a Chinese car firm", says Stokes. "And yes, one should be worried: The OnceGreat Britain learned the hard way as it woke up to the fact that world renowned brands spawnedwithin its borders were now owned by offshore others, while reducing its manufacturing base capacityto pre-industrial levels."Echoes of a Cold War Mindset Stokes observes further that the thought of those leading GM at themoment have been -and still are- so willing to give away a US company built on the sweat and bloodof fathers, grandfathers, great grandfathers and myriad other family and friends whose contributionscreated an industrial powerhouse long the envy of the planet (and a heretofore non-existent, successful,middle class) to a communist, dictatorial regime whose skirts are still awash in the blood of millions ofits own people eliminated in the Mao ordered purges between 1949 and 1967, is at once disturbing andincomprehensible. "It begs the question of how this type of corporate behavior would have beenviewed at the height of the Cold War, and what the consequences might have been. And, need we addthat GM is still partially owned by the US government?"The Spectre of A Corporation Responsible Only to Itself Amidst Inconsistent Trade Policy Thenew analysis wonders aloud to what extent GM sought guidance in the last 30 years relative to thelevel of risk they were willing to expose themselves to a a result of significant expansion in China (askthe Tibetans why Buick is one of the most coveted brands in that country for over six decades). "TheER team refuses to believe", says Stokes, "that any credible risk assessment -given the historical and
  3. 3. provable excesses of Chinas communist party- would have strongly recommended GM investing inthis country no matter how rich and enduring its heritage as the oldest continuing civilization on thisearth. "It is suspected that GM may have been told what so many other corporations seeking to tapthe potential riches of an emerging market 1 billion plus people strong were advised: No moreexposure to potential losses in real estate, technology and people than they could effectively absorb",said one China analyst. "In short, I doubt that it was terribly encouraging for the simple reason therewas more at risk than just GMs bottom line." (see Super-Globalism)According to ER analysts, If the old GM hierarchy proceeded with an observable modicum of cautionin line with the conclusions of a presumed risk analysis conducted, the current leadership, withextremely limited automotive industry management skillsets, has abandoned anything resemblingcaution despite warnings from learned, knowledgeable, extraordinarily well connected sources bothgovernmental and private. "Indeed, one ignores the findings of the United States China Economic andSecurity Review Commission and the US Department of Defense only at their own peril", Stokes furtherobserved. "Obviously, the current and lamentable state of affairs cannot be lain squarely at the feet ofcorporate executives, for the simple reason that legally they can do no more than the trade policies ofthis government permit. And unfortunately, such policies past and present, the last 25 years inparticular, have not proven themselves as champions of US industrial base preservation", he said.???VW (????(??)) Has Substantial Reason to Protest "GM Number One in The World Again"Status The ER analysis points out that in spite of the various pundits, "analysts" and other industry"observers" who have derided Volkswagens current stance, the company is right to protest the "GM isNumber One in The World Again" mantle conferred by those who have not bothered to do theirhomework in terms of determining how, and from where, those claimed sales and production numberswere formulated and derived. "It has been determined by several credible sources that such "official"PRC data is infamously unreliable, inaccurate and specifically designed to perpetuate a falsehood,indeed a facade -the Chinese ghost cities as a supreme example- of a quasi-reality", says Stokes. "Itcan be stated here and now, based on inferential data collected by the USCC, that if the production andsales numbers assigned to the Chinese market were scrutinized in line with traditional data compilationmethodologies, Chinas Number 1 in Auto Sales and Manufacturing title would disappear overnight.Yes, it may very well attain that status in the future, but not now nor in 2010".SAAB The ER analysis also provides a sidebar commentary on the continuing efforts to allowSwedish automotive icon SAAB to remain viable. "The ER team feels it important to statecategorically that GM will permit Zhejiang Youngman Lotus to purchase -over the "objections" ofSwedish receivers - SAAB for the simple reason there was no true objection in the first place" saidStokes. "In fact, it was part of an GM internal strategy to create the appearance of strength andindependence for GM -even a hint of altruism- as they publicly stated the concerns they had from amarket competitiveness, proprietary information and technology standpoint of Youngman acquiring theremnants of this highly respected vehicle marque." The ER analysis further states that Youngman, anovice on the international auto industrial scene, has been assured its overtures have not nor will bedismissed - if they are patient. "A patience, mind you, that allowed Chinas auto industry to add thevenerable MG nameplate to its repertoire of acquired Western brands", Stokes said. "In this regard, it ishoped that GM renders the above assessment a falsehood.""???" (Foreigners) Held in Derision According to ER sources,the PLA (yes, Peoples LiberationArmy; every major corporation in China is under their control) handlers of Western executives, are inall likelihood, privately laughing derisively at their level of naivete`, measurable only in a quantumuniverse. (see "Crisis on Asimov: A Vision of 2085") To be sure", says Stokes, "the recently announcedhigher tariffs, taxes and the intended limiting of foreign imports by China is just the beginning,
  4. 4. followed by state ordered property confiscations utilizing a method that Warren Buffetts BYD is onlyall too familiar. It would be wise to remember also that both GM and Ford ceased operations in Chinafollowing the Mao led Communist victory over Generalissimo Chiang Kai-Shek in 1949. And, moreimportant to this discussion, the current government of China is ideologically the mirror of thatestablished by Mao Zhe-Dong. Conversely, any firm doing or planning to do, business in this countryshould keep that fact in mind." But the analysis concludes that GM neednt worry, for now at least:"They have been successfully absorbed by the PRC collective with DNA markers indistinguishablefrom the absorbing entity. Nevertheless, according to our sources", says Stokes, "the relationship is nolonger symbiotic and the host, GM, is of limited value in the same way that Boeing and Airbus are.The latter in light of Chinas rolling out a pre-production prototype of their first indigenously producedC919 airliner last year, incorporating Airbus A320, Boeing 737, 777 and 787 Dreamliner technologyand process.""Once again, the Chinese, no matter their chosen course of governance, have proven themselvesmasters of the endgame and true progeny of Sun Tzu." GMs transition to China, Stokes asserts, is nowcomplete. ### About eMOTION! REPORTS.com eMOTION!
