    Regarding GM's November sales in China...

    <at 40 percent increase over last year, against GM's 11 percent improvement it will not take as long as you think before Ford not only matches but exceeds GM's sales in China as well as her in US.

    It would be a worthwhile exercise for you to take a few minutes off from your busy schedule of posting and read up on COMPOUNT interest (percentages) and TRENDS!

    I will take 40 percent Year over year against 11 percent Year over Year even if the starting figures were 200,000 versus 50,000.>

    You BONEHEAD! You can't POSSIBLY think that a 40% increase is going to happen year after year! If so, you are as dumb as a box of rocks.

    So, here it goes MORON.
    Assume 40% growth for F in China.
    Assume 10% growth for GM in China.
    It's NOT likely that F can sustain those gains for MANY reasons that you're too dumb to figure out. But, we'll just go with it.
    The results are that it would take 5 cycles (YEARS if we're comparing YOY monthly results) for F to even be close to GM's results.

    It will be a HECK of a lot easier for GM, in the case of this little exercise of 5 cycles, to go from 196K units to 315K unit than it will be for Ford to go from 57K units to ~307K units.
