Weegy: he auto industry, as much as any, shows some of the defects inherent in capitalism. First of all, capitalism requires a certain amount of govt. regulation. Too much is as bad as too little, but a certain amount is necessary. [ Capitalism depends on a competitive ‘free market’. But where there is competition there are winners, and once there are clear winners there is no longer competition. This is what happened in the auto industry 80-90 years ago. There hasn’t been a new major auto manufacturer in the US since the 1920s. The few smaller manufacturers (American Motors, Packard, Hudson, Studebaker) have fallen by the wayside. Secondly, large, powerful corporations tend to have too much power over our government, regulating the agencies that are supposed to be regulating them. In the 60s and 70s when we realized that air pollution caused by automobiles was costing us more than the cars themselves, the govt. tried repeatedly, over a long number of years, to mandate pollution standards, and later fuel economy standards. The American manufacturers swore it was impossible to meet those standards, but Japanese manufacturers had no trouble. American cars in the 70s were junk–unreliable, rough-running, hard to start, short-lived, because of new mandatory smog requirements. Japanese cars improved incredibly during this period. It was the beginning of the end for American cars. In 1980, the Ford Motor Company did a huge, expensive study to see why it was Americans preferred Japanese cars. What they found (and any of us could have just told them!) was that Americans thought Japanese cars were higher quality, better reliability, longer life. So Ford decided to spend a billion dollars over the next several years, not to improve their product but to improve their customers’ PERCEPTION of their product. They ran campaigns with quality themes. “At Ford, quality is Job One”. Their cars did improve, but only slowly. Today every car made in the US is made by a joint ... (More)
