Podcast: Howes on Detroit's hot seat
Daniel Howes' Weekend Essay
Detroit News Columnist Daniel Howes and Michigan Radio are partners in weekly essays examining what's hot in Michigan business and politics -- and what it all means. This week, Howes says evidence is mounting of building investor pressure on General Motors and Ford Motor to show they can negotiate a slowdown and invest for an uncertain future. But the two appear to be reacting differently, a commentary on the respective leadership teams, their risk tolerance and their differing assessments of today’s business and the future challenges in the autonomy-and-mobility space.
