Danica gets the pole for the Daytona 500! First woman to ever achieve that honor.
If last night's race is any indication the 500 is going to be a ball to the walls hell of a race!!!!!!!!!!
Government Motors has been an employment agency instead of a business for decades. That's why they went bankrupt.

How those improvements fulfill profits one way or the other is the concern of management.
Once again, your knowledge of business is pathetic.
Fk off!
You've never interviewed anyone, have you? if it wasn't for increasing profits, why even bother meeting the person you hire beforehand?

No, but you may be a furrie.

The tea party movement stands for lower taxes. If you don't like that, tough shit.

Hillary Clinton Panda Sex Tape: The Freaky Way FreedomWorks Thinks About Politics
FreedomWorks is flush with money, but there appears to be little direction on how to utilize that money effectively. For many, the creation of the panda video is further proof of the organization's poor management.
Kibbe’s personal profit and use of the organizations resources for self-promotion has caused some conservatives to distance themselves from FreedomWorks. More than Kibbe’s use of the organization for personal gain, it is more likely that the waining political power of the organization will be its undoing.
“They’re chasing the movement rather than leading it,” according to Chris Littleton of the Ohio Liberty Coalition.
Despite receiving several large donations from the president of Cancer Treatment Centers for the 2012 election, and pouring money into races like that of tea-party favorite Joe Walsh in Illinois, there were few victories to celebrate this year.
The mounting failures of FreedomWorks and its severe lack of judgement in the creation of the panda-Clinton video, call into question the overall efficacy of conservative grassroots organizations.

Improving production, distribution, and sales may mean having fewer employees, not more.

Many companies function efficiently with only core staff, farming out as much as possible.

Lower taxes for the rich--corrupt capitalism at its worse. Did you invest with Alpha (Massey) along with R'Money?

Nah, he's not an elitist

"President Obama played golf Sunday with Tiger Woods during the president’s long holiday weekend in Florida, the White House said.

The foursome at the Floridian National Golf Club, in Palm City, Fla., included U.S. trade representative Ron Kirk and Jim Crane, a Democratic donor who owns the club and the Houston Astros baseball team."

I spent yesterday at the track and today watched TV as Danica captured the pole. Last night's race was a bullshyte deal not to mention cold as a mofo. The coming week will be much warmer with temps in the 70's and the twins as well as the 500 should be classics with the new cars and visual technologies.

NASCAR/ISC is building profits through the efforts of others__no interviews necessary. The employees that fret about parking, security, facilities maintenance etc etc take away from the bottom line thus reducing profits rather than contributing to.

You, Galt and Eman are losers without a clue about how industry operates___dumber than Carol and that takes some effort.

You & your buttbuddy Galt know nothing about running a business so I wold STFU about sh*t you know NOTHING about.

My God.

I would never ever start a business or run one where my goal was to pay people as little as possible.

The key to being successful is to locate good employees & keep them by paying a good wage with good benefits.

It is these good employees that learn their jobs & improve their production & offer opinions on improving market share, production & efficiencies that increase profits. Not paying them less.

Reuters reports that GM is losing $49,000 for every Volt it builds, renewing criticism that the eco-friendly hybrid will never be profitable
http://theweek.com/article/index/233140/the-c...
You moron. This has been debunked many times

The idiot that wrote your source article forgot to mention that most of that cost was development costs. These are high because everything about the Volt had to be designed & tested.

"Based on interviews with industry experts, Reuters estimated it costs GM between $75,000 and $88,000 today to build each Volt. Most of that --$56,000 -- comes from the cost to develop the Volt's unique power system, a combination of gas engine, electric motors, massive lithium-ion battery pack and a complicated transmission, all powered by custom GM software that controls how the car starts, stops and recharges. The rest of the cost comes from the raw material, labor costs and other overhead."
