    No one in China is aware of $GM's recent drama. That's very good news. My source is my field research in China.

    • Sander@parlini.com: Aah okay. hmm wonder what will happen if China finds out
      4/2/14
    • Wilson Wang: Don't think they will. Gm bought out the media.

    • chuck holladay: Wilson you cain.t say that with a straight face can you? You are on the ground in China today?

    • Wilson Wang: Yes I am and yes I can. There's literally nothing about GM on the news.

    • Copious28: The US news channels get fixated on one thing and beat it to death. There have been a crap ton of recalls by all manu's this quarter.

    • Snoopy1: Given how defective many Chinese products are, the GM recall is a non-event.

    • Sander@parlini.com: People have social media and other stuff, i can't believe China doesn't know anything about this situation.... anyway, GM in green again..

    • Wilson Wang: Yeah. No one is aware of it.

    • Sander@parlini.com: How can we tell people in China? This stock needs to go down
      4/2/14
    • Wilson Wang: Haha. Getting news out in a communist country? Good luck. GM's brand segmentation is definitely helping in this case.

    • JayXu: this is not true. chinese are aware of the recalls, there are lots of news abpiy the recall. just baidu it if you know chinese.

    • JayXu: I bet Wilsoon doesnt even read chinese.

    • JayXu: I grew up in China and came to US for graduate school. I can assure you chinese are aware of the recall. But the recall wont be abig problem
      4/4/14
    • JayXu: partly because Chinese media is focusing on the MH370 missing jet. 150 chinese just disappeared. The recall doenst sound that interesting
      4/4/14
    • JayXu: another reason is that Chinese cars are even shittier. The recall doesnt sound as outrageous in China. As long as GM treats Chinese
      4/4/14
    • JayXu: customers fairly, recall cars the way it does in the US., GM's reputation wont take a big hit.
      4/4/14
    • Wilson Wang: jayxu, you want to bet I can't read chinese? That's not the point. The chinese consumers I've been surveying don't recall any GM news.
      4/4/14
    • Wilson Wang: Jayxu, if it proves anything, 我问过大概有90多个人,他们都说不知道。我知道这个数量很少,但是我总觉得大家都不知道GM现在发生的事情。
