Reminded of Tom Peters

GM in early talks to buy Chrysler: source – Yahoo! News

I'm reminded of hearing Tom Peters ask once:

“What do you expect when one big, slow, dopey company merges with another big, slow, dopey, company??”

That's pretty much the exact quote. Peters loves the phrase “big, slow, dopey.”

Seriously, both companies have a lot of excess capacity. Would GM really do this just to gain market share to remain #1? Is this profitable marketshare?
