GM CEO Sees Flat 2012 For U.S. Auto Sales

General Motors CEO Dan Akerson foresees flat industrywide U.S. auto sales in 2012, but says GM can continue to prosper because of a low breakeven point, sustained in part by the new contract with the UAW. Akerson’s market forecast for next year is gloomier than that of many analysts, but he doesn’t buy the predictions of a sales-juicing incentive binge.
