The health implications of the diesel scandal - BBC News
[ http://www.spiegel.de/thema/abgasaffaere_bei_volkswagen/ ] The diesel scandal started as a worry for car owners. Yet, according to Prof Alistair Lewis, an air pollution expert at the University of York, "it is overwhelmingly a health story". The costs of not doing more to tackle air pollution can be measured in "thousands of deaths and billions of pounds, all passed on to the taxpayer", he says. "The real costs here are the ones the taxpayer picks up in terms of providing extra healthcare," he explains. "The only reason we measure NO2 (nitrogen dioxide) and particulates is because they are harmful to health." //&! youtu.be/HG8Kpfs4ZYs - Krank dank VW?

Volkswagen's Scandal is Libor on Wheels - Bloomberg View
There's never just one cockroach. That's what we learned from the market-rigging scandals in recent years. Be it the London Interbank Offered Rates, currencies, metals, oil or… (you get the picture), it turned out that every bank and broker that touched every market benchmark left grubby fingerprints of fraud, collusion and deceit. So the revelation that Volkswagen cheated for years on tests measuring how much damage its diesel engines do to the environment raises a mammoth question: Who else did the same? //&! bv.ms/1KFQ16P - PR/spin doctor/marketing/reframing // Corporate Governance is always the topping on the Cake.

VW-Hauptversammlung: Winterkorn hakt die Vergangenheit ab - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Auf der Hauptversammlung verknüpft VW-Chef Winterkorn die Zukunft von Europas größtem Autokonzern mit sich selbst. [...] Mit seinem Effizienzprogramm (das Wort "Sparprogramm" passt nicht zum Erfolgskurs) soll die Kernmarke VW noch in diesem Jahr mehr als eine Milliarde Euro einsparen. "Hier lassen wir - hier lasse ich nicht nach", betont Winterkorn. Bei VW bauen Menschen Autos für Menschen, wirbt der Konzernchef. "Und ich verspreche ihnen: Daran wird sich auch in Zukunft nichts ändern". << Werkvertraege und Leiharbeit (Lohnkostensenkung in GER) // are they really ahead of the cure or are they just coping with the change. meaning not willing to disrupt itself? to risk entering new industries what will take 10 years to mature (3D Printing (new materials), Software, Robotics, Automation, stakes in Share Economy and on-demand economy (Lyft, Uber, Hailo, BlaBlaCar, Postmates, FernReisebusunternehmen). ... which would actually show Leadership.

Why Elon Musk Just Opened Up All of Tesla's Patents : The New Yorker
It’s a risky move but a shrewd one. It’s one that wouldn’t make a lot of sense for a lot of companies. But it does for Tesla. The company’s stock has doubled in the past year, but the industry is struggling. Musk’s biggest electic-car-entrepreneur-frenemy, Shai Agassi, led his company, Better Place, into bankruptcy a year ago. It’s a good moment for the industry to get a jolt. “Putting in long hours for a corporation is hard,” Musk said on Thursday during a conference call. “Putting in long hours for a cause is easy.” What exactly is that cause? It’s bringing clean cars to the people, of course. But it’s also, it seems now, showing the world a new way to think about innovation. || +++ http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2014/06/17/teslas-elon-musk-on-making-electric-car-patents-public-were-really-all-in-the-same-ship/ >> // Industrial Policy - 1% and increasing incrementally on gas guzzling cars. + emissions tax on consumer driving a gas guzzeler.
