M&A Outlook 2009: Irving Place's Howard on government regulation and the auto bailout

Published December 12, 2008 at 5:04 PM


John Howard, CEO of Irving Place Capital, was a panelist at The Deal's M&A Outlook 2009 conference. In this clip, Howard talks about what actions he would like to see the government take over the next year. Those actions include freeing up liquidity, helping consumer confidence and a possible auto bailout.

Concerning the auto bailout, Howard said, "This issue about the government bailing out the auto businesses. The point that was made before is that it is critical for our economy that this happen, but simultaneously the way those businesses are run has to change. How you do that as a government is a very tricky issue."

Other countries have moved away from such a system, most notably Japan and the U.K. That's made the U.K. a more attractive venue for companies and helped allow Japanese corporations to grow by making acquisitions overseas. But the dysfunctional U.S. political system means such change is unlikely here. More video
