Beijing Not Only Slowing Growth; Traffic Too

Beijing is notorious for having some of the worst traffic jams in the world.

In fact, a global survey conducted this year by IBM said Beijing is tied with Mexico City for the world's worst commute.

And worries are growing that Beijing is choking off future growth if it gets more difficult to move people and goods around the city.

So how are they attempting to tackle this problem? By cutting new car registration by two thirds.

Only 240,000 new registrations will be allowed in 2011.

But increasingly affluent Chinese want cars for status and a sign of independence, and they have easily found ways to finesse official restrictions in the past.

How will this impact GM and Ford ?

Find out from Maryann Keller, President of Maryann Keller and Associates. Watch the video now!
