Ford reported a profit of some $750 million dollars in the last quarter. Surprised even them, I think.

It also looks like Cerberus is having trouble raising the funds for their Chrysler buyout.

How did they do it?

It's easy to show a one-time profit by selling assets. A lot harder would be producing goods & services that people want to, you know... buy.

I think they did it by closing plants and laying off people.

To quote Dilbert's pointy-haired boss:

"I cut 10% of our work force, and our stock went up 10%. I figure if I fire everyone, the company will be worth twice what it is now!"

Someone from Yale would just dance around a coffin, chant, praise free trade and then become president of the United States. Someone else would drop out of Yale, run Halliburton and become VP.
