Are US Automakers in for a Good Decade?

CNN/Money posts a scenario looking back, from the perspective of 2015, on the rebirth of the "big three" US automakers. The recent bankruptcy of auto supplier Delphi, combined with the need to develop more fuel-efficient models, spurs the revitalization. The scenario also envisions surging car demand from China and India (ignited in part by the fall of Chinese communism) and strong partnerships between US, European and Japanese automakers.
