The reason many Americans still do not believe the bailouts were necessary is because bailout opponents promote the fantasy that privately funded alternatives were available. They were not....

I'm not sure what Americans your poll surveyed, Amber, but they were not people who buy new cars. November U.S. sales were the highest since 2001, led by big sales gains by both GM and Chrysler....

Two thoughts: the Abarth is fun to drive because it's a small sporty car with a great exhaust note. The 500e is fun because of it's instantaneous torque, because it's different and because it...
