That really is bad news. Delphi has a very good reputation for building innovative and quality products for OEM manufacturers. Now some is being sold and made in China? No thanks!

Yep. They supply us with all the little tedious things and we supply them with the machines and technology to build them for us.

Beyond that, who do you think loans us the money so we can acquire more debt? Its not US businessmen buying bonds to fund the bailout. The last brake pads I bought were made in Australia.

Great. Pot metal brake components.
Hmmm. I thought I was on the wrong board there for a minute. I mean you had 'great' 'pot' & 'metal' all combined into one post!

When I worked in a parts store it was fun to see where things came from besides US and China. Israel probably popped up more than Germany, South Africa and India combined.

Actually it would be the Chinese who will get screwed. We would lose a AAA credit rating, but they would not get paid. Which is worse?

It would be worse for you. If a country doesn't pay it's debts, it is you that will get screwed. Nobody wants to do business with that kind of banana republic.
