Support your answers with examples. please cover both questions, i took in my first homework 50% because the writer did not answer it well.. and i need you to respond for my classmate answers in one paragraph my classmate answers : Do you think that the U.S. auto industry was helped or hurt by efforts of imports? The auto industry can be helped and hurt at the same time. They can be helped because they can keep jobs if they do this. It keeps the people in their position and it also keeps the unemployment rate low. You want to create a situation where demand is for the best product. The government was helpful to the auto industry by giving them a financial bailout in this was it also helped the auto industry from going under and spending too much money. Printing more money helps the U.S but it deepens out debt, meaning we owe more money to the deficit. We are increasing money we owe to ourselves. When the U.S restricts trade the result is that an inferior product for the consumer will result. Since product will not live up to the consumers expectations. For example, if Honda were to stop exporting cars to the U.S, then General Motors will stop worrying about the competition from Honda and potentially be less innovative. Do you think that the U.S. autoworkers was helped or hurt by efforts of imports? The autoworkers are being helped to the extent that some foreign cars like Toyota Camry’s and Honda Accord’s are being manufactured in the U.S for sale in the U.S. This is one way that autoworkers are being able to keep their jobs. Keep in my mind that the workers manufacturing Toyota and Honda cars are not part of the United Workers Union, because its a Japanese factory coming from the U.S. However if all segments of the auto industry sales starts to decline, all the autoworkers will be hurt.The autoworkers are tied into the U.S auto industry because if the auto industry goes down the workers go down with the industry. Meaning auto workers would lose their jobs. The government influences the auto industry by governments policies, regulations, and control. Forcing manufactures to build more safer and more fuel efficient cars. Both sides have to work together in order to keep the industry alive. This is because if one stops working or doing their job it’s going to fail and collapse. responses to classmates’ postings should also be well-written and intelligent.
