Definitions of short-sightedness:
1. My eyeglasses prescription.
2. The US Senate's refusal to back an aid package to the auto industry.
Somehow, as noted earlier, financial institutions get billions, only to fail anyway.
But an industry that employs a million Americans is supposed to just go bankrupt, taking the supplier industry with it?
The Canadian federal and Ontario provincial governments have proposed a $3.3 billion dollar package - proportionally, much greater that the $14 billion plan the US Senate rejected. But the Canadian funds only kick in when US aid is forthcoming.
So irony of ironies, we wait for US president George W. Bush to do the right thing.
What are the chances of that?
