Brandeis Saves the Big 3

I was greeted this morning by a delightful email sent out to Sociology majors.  Noted website and blog Huffington Post has begun publishing the work of Brandeis professor (drumroll please)…

Gordie Fellman!

Surprisingly, rather than writing about the latest phase of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict on which he teaches a class, Gordie hypothesizes about how to save the auto industry. He concludes that rather than continuing to hire executives who demand huge salaries, private jets, and golden parachutes, the Big 3 would be smarter to:

Turn to the one resource that probably has the strength, imagination, daring, and commitment to pull off a complete turnaround of the auto companies. I am talking about the lower level staff and workers who can bring their ideas, their ignored wisdom, and their neglected talents to the executive suite and figure out how to solve transportation problems in ways that will benefit everyone.

It’s a short article and a quick read so I suggest you take a look at the whole thing.

It’s nice to know that there is a professor at Brandeis who we can trust to take the side of the working class every time.
