Ben Was Here


Seriously, That’s Your Plan?

Ford CEO Alan Mulally proved today that he is completely out of ideas and that he and his company think everyone everywhere are idiots. Given time to develop a plan to cut costs and prove themselves worthy of taxpayer assistance, Ford cut only two things, corporate jets and CEO salary. While these cuts are a good start, they were pretty obvious, even to a child. This plan means one of two things, either a) your company doesn’t need a bailout (cutting jets and one person’s salary is enough to save you) or the more likely b) even with a bailout, your company is doomed due to poor management.

I believe its time to let business Darwinism run its course and let the stupid companies die off. We are a nimble society, we can adapt to a world without the companies formerly known as the big three.

Update: It seems more details are emerging for Ford’s plan to become profitable. However, they are still vague and seem more like pandering just to recieve the bailout rather than a solid plan.
