Michael Dell Thinks Automakers Are Slacking

At a recent meeting of the Detroit Economic Club (no jokes, please), Michael Dell, founder and CEO of Dell Computer, made an hour-long power speech about the opportunity present in changing markets like the one automakers now find themselves in. Saying "I think there is opportunity all up and down the spectrum," Dell was stating what business-folks have known for a long time: that chaos is just another word for profit. Now, Michael, have any good ideas on how to amortize the cost on a billion-dollar investment in now-idled truck plants? [DetNews]
