he spreading scandal of Volkswagen's falsifying of emission tests to evade
regulations has begun to expose the cozy connections between the German
government and the company.

A recent article in the *New York Times* said: “There exists a
revolving-door climate in which leaders glide between tops posts in
government and auto firms.”

But a recent settlement between the US government and General Motors
reveals similar corruption.
