    I remember playing Monopoly and always tried to acquire all the railway companies !!!

    Oh, this is hot off the press too:

    Magna is not getting Opel !!! EU wants to keep jobs in Germany …

  2. kempton says:

    Same thoughts re Monopoly’s railway companies. Or the MTR stations in the HK edition.

    Yeah, too bad the Magna deal felt through as GM doesn’t need to sell Opel now. If the German government had OKed the deal earlier, things might have been different now.

    From this news
    http://www.cbc.ca/money/story/2009/11/03/gm-kills-magna-deal.html
    “Given an improving business environment for GM over the past few months, and the importance of Opel/Vauxhall to GM’s global strategy,” the automaker said in a statement, “the GM board of directors has decided to retain Opel and will initiate a restructuring of its European operations in earnest.”

    I wonder if the sale has anything to do with the fact that Vice Pres. Joe Biden is a longtime supporter of the railway industry.

  4. kempton says:

    exile,

    I doubt Joe Biden has anything to do with this deal. Buffett owned something like 24% before this deal.

    I put more background and info in my English blog entry, check that out if you are interested.
