US Global Defamation Campaign Against Volkswagen (R German Push-Overs?)

[...] Note that the Europeans saw it coming: Already in 1967, long before the information age, the Frenchman J. J. Servan-Schreiber wrote ‘Le defi americain” in which he warned Europe of total US dominance in all financial, industrial, and technological spheres. In 1990, the German political adviser Konrad Seitz published a book with the doomy subtitled: “Germany’s high-technology industries battle for survival”. He was right. And it got worse. By 2004, every German manager knew that the US takes on the liberty to rule and police all humankind, and that it can (and will) arbitrary sue any German company that is “doing business” in the US, even for wrongdoing not related to the US. On the other hand, if a “non-American wants to sue a US company, the authorities will simply declare non-jurisdiction.” The US legal system has little to do with justice in a European sense. Lawyers are paid by the hours, often $500 and upwards. Companies are arbitrary attacked with an early settlement in mind. Emotions are everything. News coverage often prevents impartiality of the juries. Damages are estimated. Compensations are out of touch with reality. Bertelsmann, Deutsche Bank, DaimlerChrysler all are frequently tried, and cashed up. Class actions are popular. Bayer was sued by not less than 11,000 individuals, according to Manager Magazine. [...]

USA suing foreign companies is lucrative, patriotic, and... they're easy prey!

“American investigators, lawyers, and the media will continue to preferably go after ‘foreigners’, because first it is lucrative; second it is patriotic; and third Non-Americans are easy prey.”

Nazikeule: US pillories Germany's Volkswagen

"Journalists all want to know that a manipulative soft-ware was installed to artificially keep the fume spew low during check-ups and under laboratory conditions. Meanwhile, into the wild, the ambitious car models, the Passat and the Jetta, allegedly fired five to thirty times (!) more nasty particles into America’s airspace than the user manual promised. Make that forty times more, if you are The Economist magazine."
