Tin(y) Cars

A bit of a puff piece (see below) on Sergio Marchionne but I’m excited about the FIAT 500.

“At first glance Fiat-Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne could pass for a humanities teacher at a small liberal arts college. He wears his black hair on the shaggy side, affects a casual and unchanging wardrobe (blue checked shirt and black sweater), and maintains an attachment to cigarettes (Marlboros in the U.S., Murattis in Italy). He conducts conversations like graduate seminars and seasons his comments with historical references. In a recent speech he quoted Karl Marx, Albert Einstein, Friedrich Nietzsche, and Ronald Reagan.”
