Uh-oh boys and girls, Robert Farago's at it again! This time, he's taking the bull by the horns in his two most recent episodes of the GM Death Watch. But he should be careful, cause this bull is none other than the biggest and most well-known full-service financial institution in the world, Merrill Lynch. Undaunted by the size of the task, Farago's going for the throat — attacking Mother Merrill's auto-analyst John Murphy for his glowing report on the General after the higher-than-expected buyout numbers. But that's merely the first of his matador-like attacks.
The second of his possibly never-ending series focuses on the debut of
Troy Clarke as the new head of GM NorAm — and why under-paid Chinese workers fit into the picture like the second shooter on the grassy knoll. We're never quite sure we buy it all Bobby, but we sure as hell love reading it!
