It comments on the call from Commerce Secretary Malcolm Baldridge and Transportation Secretary Drew Lewis for a limit on Japanese automobile imports. It describes the manner in which the U.S. automobile industry was misled with regard to the production of fuel-efficient cars and the price of petroleum.
