    In Crash Course, Ingrassia answers the big questions: Was Detroit's self-destruction inevitable? What were the key turning points? Why did Japanese automakers manage American workers better than the American companies themselves? Ingrassia also describes dysfunctional corporate cultures (even as GM's market share plunged, the company continued business as usual) and Detroit's perverse system of "inverse layoffs" (which allowed union members to invoke seniority to avoid work).

    Roy says: "Contemporary History at Its Best"
    "an oligopoly and a monopoly"
    Overall

    I did not realize how destructive the combination of oligopoly (Big 3 or Detroit 3) and monopoly (UAW) can be to an entire industry. I recommend that you read this well written history.
