Renault-Nissan Alliance, the myth of the “necessary rebalancing”

The Alliance rebalancing is now a “chestnut tree” in the automotive press. De facto, the Alliance is unbalanced since what founded it is a call for help from a major builder to which responded a builder who was less important and who did his job so well that the imbalance was confirmed. . Add to that arbitrations by the boss of the Alliance with little rebalancing and we have a question that, out of decorum, we refuse to close by reaffirming a right of the strongest capitalistically. By dint of perseverance, the ground for an abandonment in open country of a legitimate control of a manufacturer by another is ready. If, rather than resisting this pressure, we submit to it, the chestnut tree will die and the Alliance with it.
