Should U.S. automakers just pack up and move to China? The idea isn't so far fetched.

In the U.S. sales have perked up a bit, but remain deeply depressed. Even if they were better, competition is fierce, it's hard to make profits on the smaller cars and SUVs now in demand and no one feels any particular pressure to buy a new car. They can just keep patching up the old one.

No they are going to have to compete in the world market and can get caught agina just on emakrket and one product type. China sells may really help them except for the trade war problems which may restrict them like we did the japnaese . Most like they will have to be built there like we forced the japanese to do.
