ABSTRACT
The article assesses the trends in the automobile industry since 1958. Life at the top of the automobile industry is dangerous. The bosses come and the bosses go. If there is an exception to the head-rolling, it is General Motors. Despite all its troubles over the past dozen years the company management has been amazingly stable. The board of directors has been willing to accept any disaster without shaking the management structure.
