the economic Civil War

Slate has an interesting piece about the ongoing economic war between the south and the north, with the south attempting to undercut the north's industrial advantage by gutting services, unionization, and worker pay and benefits. Applied to the car industry, it becomes the southern attempt to undo Detroit and American car manufacturing so that southern auto plants, which don't have the same labor standards, can thrive by producing cars from foreign companies.

Perhaps the South should have been allowed to secede after all...
