The article explores lessons from the auto-manufacturing sector bailout in the U.S. During the bailout, the government reportedly recognized how interconnected entire sector had become. One expert believes the government should intervene only when it can support multiple industries, when there is a natural government purpose, and when the private sector helps contribute to the work. Meanwhile, the electric-car sector is the part of the bailout that still struggles to pay dividends.
