    enormous???? if he could play basketball, he'd make that each game, work five months of the year, and could talk in sentences with up to five or six words strung together at one time.

    If Fields sticks to that failed "One Ford" strategy, Ford will be toast.

     

    Margins are where it's at. Everybody but Ford seems to know it.
    Perhaps it's time to actually invest in New World Class luxury platforms rather than bonuses for executives like Mullally. Even Jaguar/Land Rover is thriving after being cut loose from years of mismanagement and underinvestment from Ford.

     

    Ford is now the Walmart of cars, and will not survive the next downturn in the business cycle.

    "High Margin"

     

    Gee what a concept.

     

    Seems everybody but Ford understands it.

    Perhaps Mr. Fields will hire an advertising agency that can come up with a better company motto that will help Ford to a better position amongst car manufacturers and to get away from that "One Ford". There's only one way for Ford to go is: UP. And then there's the subject about Mr. Field's salary and commission in the form of stock: he's another over-paid executive working for a company that is struggling to stay afloat in a market that is known for its fierce competiveness. Also, to remain the world #1 auto maker and to reach and sustain that position requires guts and tenacity and the knowledge of how to make automobiles that meet and exceed the requirements of the public and a tough quality assurance team to build "recall" free autos. Sure you can open plants overseas but its another to make a positive mark with your product on the public. Perhaps Ford execs could look at the workings of AAPL, GOOGLE, AMAZON, PRICELINE for a very large dose of how to be a winner in the fierce game of auto making. I have owned Ford products from 1977 and seen the massive positive changes Ford has made. And yes, they have come along way baby. Enough said. I believe that with the right mental and professional attitude Ford can thrive and surpass the top auto makers. Enough said. I welcome your comments wholeheartedly.

    I have followed Mark's career for many years and he is no Allen Mullally. In fairness not many executives are. The problem is that now that adult supervision has left the room Ford will fall back into it's old ways. Mullally left the horrible quality in tact so Mark's only job is to tank share and margins. Without Mullaly there to steady the ship it will only take a few more terrible sales months before they panic and hit the incentive button.
