Indeed- I think it will help. The weaker dollar has got to be upsetting Japanese automakers. The much weaker yen is one thing that allowed them to be so competitive. The Japanese government has done much to try to keep the yen weak-- it's crossed over into a level that I think is wrong- but what can be done to fix it? Weak dollar = good thing for GM. Exports will be more profitable and the Japanese automakers will be less profitable with exports to the US.
