Rhoda Miel, our Detroit-based staff reporter, recently sat in on a Q&A event with General Motors Co. Chairman and CEO Dan Akerson. The video below includes one of the highlights -- it's Akerson talking about the problem of insular thinking. The audio is a little difficult to understand, but we thought we'd post it anyway because many blog readers in the auto industry will be interested in anything GM's top dog has to say. The video is from a conference in Beijing sponsored by our sister publication Automotive News. Jason Stein, editor of AN, is the moderator. The full interview covered a wide spectrum of topics, everything from the process when he was selected to head GM, and his wife's reaction (he says he didn't tell her until they were on vacation) to his love of the new Cadillacs and the Volt and electric cars.
