Das Auto, now what?

Tue, 2015-09-29 09:37

The biggest automaker in the world admits it screwed up. Rigging emissions tests on its diesel cars will cost Volkswagen billions. But what's happened to car owners' trust?
Our guest is Henry Mintzberg, a Cleghorn professor of management studies at McGill University and author of Rebalancing Society: Radical Renewal Beyond, Left, Right, and Center. He argues that what happened at Volkswagen was not a scandal, but a part of a pattern or syndrome.

It’s hard to hear anything over the chirping. Cardboard boxes filled with egg cartons and sheets of plastic buzz with thousands of young-adult crickets calling out to one another to mate.
... Gabriel Mott, the chief operating officer of Aspire Food Group, yells above the noise and points inside one of the boxes. “You see the one with the wings?” he asks. “That’s a female. They get their wings at their final stage.”
