The BK blues

So, GM declares bankruptcy. In November, that's what I and a lot of others were recommending until a few things became clear...

1) No one wanted to carry the DIP
2) The previous Administration were going to use BK to break the UAW

Now we're back to square one, the unions have take their hit and the bondholders have taken their hit. The ironic thing is that if the bondholders had caved and accepted equity, this wouldn't have needed to happen. Now, everyone walks away with less because the government now effectively owns GM.

That'll teach you to be greedy and intractable.
