Los Angeles, CA -( LA Auto Show ) November 28, 2012 –   Veteran Automotive/Aerospace Journalist/Analyst, ZINTRO Expert and eMOTION! REPORTS.com Publisher Myron D. Stokes, an award-winning former Newsweek, Newsweek Japan, Newsweek International special correspondent and Interim Bureau Chief, will be available for interviews covering a wide range of automotive/aerospace industry subjects inclusive of product technology,emerging markets, crisis management, the short sightedness of offshoring manufacturing capacity and the technology associated; a re-emergent US auto industry, and the economic and national security implications of failing to protect and secure the country’s ability to manufacture things of value. http://ht.ly/fGPOO

“The US cannot exist as as consumer/service economy in the manner of Las Vegas,” says Stokes, “and expect to maintain its status, in symbiotic relationship with Great Britain, as THE world power economically and militarily.”

Moreover, Stokes is convinced, along with colleagues in the US policy shaping arena inclusive of the United States-China Economic and Security Commission (www.USCC.gov), that US, European and Asian auto companies are at profound risk of losing virtually all control of manufacturing operations in China. http://ht.ly/fGWAY     http://ht.ly/fGWsA

“It is critical that we  change that conversation in light of the  economically devastating effects of overly permissive trade regulatory processes that forced  US automotive and aerospace  entities to compete as companies, while  their international competitors operated as  countries, with the full power and resources of their parent nations,” Stokes said.  “Free trade must be fair, and our  Chinese colleagues, despite having  performed an economic miracle in recent years that rivals that of Japan in the ’80s and ’90’s and membership in the WTO, are  not interested in relinquishing one iota of  the economic advantage they have given their ‘indigenous’ auto companies.” http://ht.ly/fGRqr

Stokes has proven capable of discussing virtually every aspect of auto industry analysis with a particular focus on the China presence of western car firms.  He can discuss the risk/benefit of such presence by GM, Ford, Chrysler, the Europeans inclusive of VW; and the Japanese car companies who have  been declared for all intents and purposes “enemies of the state”.  Among other topics: whether the “bailout” of GM and Chrysler was really necessary and why Ford refused; the uncomfortable role that Wall Street played in creating a circumstance that made GM, Ford and Chrysler vulnerable to offshore takeover in the interest of short term gain.

GM Bankruptcy/TATA/Jaguar Land Rover
Stokes was directly involved in an effort to stop the declaration of GM bankruptcy through re-evaluation of global assets; coordinated with concerned European governments -excluding Germany – to prevent GM’s attempts to offload Opel resulting in an intervention by those governments; and a very specific role in changing the circumstances under which the Jaguar/Land Rover sale to TATA would occur by bringing Mahindra and Mahindra back to the acquisition table in conjunction with one of the world’s most powerful investment banking institutions working through Ford’s then CFO.

 Chrysler/Kerkorian   Toyota Intelligence Gathering
Among archived industrial base preservation activities, Stokes helped prevent the
Kerkorian takeover of Chrysler by bringing a “White Knight” into the mix and presented
to the Chrysler board through a senior communications executive. The intervention was
conveyed during an overseas call from Tokyo during the 1995 Tokyo Motor Show. It is now possible to reveal that the late Sir Alex Trotman approved Ford Motor Company’s acting in this capacity following a lengthy interaction with Stokes during a Ford media program.

Toyota Intelligence Gathering  – As Toyota grew in power, profit and influence through its US and global marketing presence which led to its supplanting GM as the world’s largest manufacturer of automobiles, the company’s public comments seemed to be increasingly dismissive of their US counterparts who were complaining about the trade imbalance and quite limited access to the Japanese market.  A trade war was averted in 1995 when Japan agreed to relax its market access requirements subsequent to discussions with then SECCOM Ron Brown (later killed in a Croatia plane crash) and Deputy Mickey Cantor.

In the ensuing years, not much changed relative to Toyota’s view of GM, Ford and Chrysler as competitors, and despite the fact that the company’s US presence was quite legal in addition to an emergent symbiotic relationship between the US and Japan economies, the preservation team decided that a modification of Toyota’s strongly influential position was in order.  Approval was sought in 2002 from US intelligence services to reveal the results of a 1988 global analysis of intelligence gathering activities by major powers, and rather than confirming that the various agencies reviewed were at the top of their game (CIA, NSA, KGB, MI-6, Mossad, et al) Toyota was assessed as the best intelligence gathering organization in the world.

Utilizing a dedicated satellite, 250,000 encrypted messages per day were sent between Toyota City and Torrance.  The CIA was sending half that amount at the time globally…

As a professor of economics at Wayne State University who was made aware of these data proffered at the time:  “Does Toyota have the right to encrypt potentially sensitive corporate data in the form of memos, reports, marketing strategies and Research and Developmental activities?  Absolutely yes.  But, did they provide the de-cryption codes to US intelligence services as required and agreed to between the respective governments?  Apparently no, they didn’t, and by failing to do so placed the entire Toyota organization operating in the west at profound risk.  Had they chosen to do so, the US government would have been perfectly within its rights to confiscate the company’s manufacturing operations, freeze its financial assets, and detain its executive personnel.  Obviously, and perhaps wisely, they didn’t.”

“In spite of the US deciding no punitive actions were required, Stokes observed, “Toyota’s stance changed remarkably, even to the point of defending and offering assistance to GM, Ford and Chrysler during the quite regrettable Congressional ‘bailout’ hearings of 2008.”

On the aerospace side, a recent analysis of Boeing Dreamliner with specific focus on the issues of a nearly unprecedented conjoining of composites to metal within critical
aircraft structure, induced a rethinking of this approach and questioned, as did a GAO analysis, the viability, accuracy and appropriateness of FAA certification processes for aircraft extensively utilizing composites. (Google -Boeing Dreamliner Analysis).

Stokes, along with national security strategist and Walsh College Academician
Dr. Sheila Ronis, has been one of the strongest voices in advocating Boeing C-17
Globemaster III Long Beach production line continuance and preservation
of over 250,000 core manufacturing positions in the US – when one correctly
invokes Keynesian Economic Multipliers – of which at least 5,000 are in California.

eMOTION! REPORTS.com ARCHIVES – Hyperintelligence: Toyota, CIA, NSA, KGB, MOSSAD [MI-6] and… Sun Tzu

Publisher’s note:  As Renault very recently found out much to its shock and dismay, the need for business intelligence and counter-intelligence is as critical to a company’s success and security as that of a nation.  In this vein, the words in 2002 of national security strategist Dr. Sheila Ronis, Director of MBA Programs at Walsh College in Troy, Michigan,  could not have been more prescient:

“The fates of companies, as well as countries are tied to their intelligence capability. Guess what organization in the world, long before the Internet’s arrival, was found to send half a million messages a day from just one country to its home base via satellite? The CIA? The Israelis? The Russians? Toyota? If you guessed Toyota, you would be right.

“As unlikely as it sounds, a CIA study in the late eighties found that Toyota sent over 500,000 messages a day from its Torrance, California facility to Tokyo via an encrypted satellite hookup. We know that our CIA sent about half as many messages around the world per day at that time, and although the Russian’s intelligence was still top notch in the early nineties, its infrastructure didn’t compare to that of Toyota’s. 

“Today, many intelligence experts believe that Toyota’s intelligence capabilities are still superior to those of the CIA, the Israelis or any global power. That’s because Toyota represents an organization filled with learners who share their knowledge.”

Conversely, it would be unwise for Toyota’s competitors to assume that the company, given the current quality problems necessitating recalls of even its Lexus brand, has somehow dropped the ball in terms of its much vaunted “Relentless Pursuit of Perfection”.   Indeed, nothing is further from the truth, and we know from our own intelligence sources that Toyota’s difficulties primarily stem from internal sabotage at the design and manufacturability level put in place nearly two decades ago.  

This activity constituted a core element of a grand strategy by an emergent global player, who understood implicitly that the success of  its long range plans required crafting a loss of consumer confidence in the Toyota brand.

One needs look no further than Renault to understand how dedicated this emergent global player is to the accomplishment of its set objectives.
