Here’s one blogger adding speculation to the fire (speculation is a very flammable fuel, if you didn’t know). I find this line amusing:
we have a hard enough time imagining an alliance between GM and
Nissan/Renault. Our brains hurt trying to imagine the mega corporation that
would be comprised of GM and Toyota.
Of course there is one major problem with all of this. GM doesn’t need to “block” Renault. They have expressed no interest in a hostile invasion of the stock. If it isn’t welcome, they don’t want the deal.
Here’s my prediction (like I have any business offering one): GM and Renault will just be silent about it. GM don’t decline the deal, but they also won’t accept it. Eventually, people will realize that the only source of news about the subject is other news and they’ll stop talking about it. Then a year later some schmuck will write a book about it.
