GM said sales in China and other foreign markets surpassed U.S. sales for the first time last year, reaching 55 percent of the worldwide total of 9.2 million.
So you agree with Harmy that the US is becoming increasingly irrelevant. correct?

There are clearly reasons to manufacture cars in the US. The number of people working in the auto industry is the same as it was 15 years ago (they're just not all part of the UAW).

I could see a point in the future where, because of legacy costs, GM stops making cars in the US, perhaps to re-enter later with a new labor force and factories.
