Cars and Sunstein

Tomorrow in The Sunday Times I brood over the last rites of the British car industry and I mull over Cass R. Sunstein's book Going to Extremes: How Like Minds Unite and Divide. Links to come


  1. did not Peter Berger deal with that in the "social construction of reality" many moons ago?

    Great article on the dying (dead?)UK car industry.
    15 years of working in Japan's car industry showed me the UK has no hope. A few great engineers doesn't make an industry (and the vast majority of UK engineers aren't great, or even good - the schools are dodgy and the universities aren't half as good as we all like to think).
    I say: move over, leave it to the Asians (and Germans), kill off the UK's car 'industry' and go do something else.

  3. that's why I benefit from coming here (plus I have no friends now, they all agreed I was odd).

    five pages on British car industries?! that's why I prefer blogs.
