In amongst all the praise for VW’s former head stepping down and a discussion of the how the company’s PR deals with this regulatory problem I could not help feel one thing was missing. The reason why all this was happening, VW killed people. It was not it cheating tests and standards it was the reason for those tests and standards, those emissions kill people.
Media is now so neo Liberal the deaths are irrelevant but PR and cost analysis fascinating. The senior figures at VW so interesting the guy on a New York sidewalk having a heart attack, statistics.
