duPont ownership of GM


Guest

Recommended Posts

I was interested to learn that GM was once owned by the duPont family (of chemical fame), until the US courts ordered them to divest. What was the basis of this court order? Is the duPont Registry an outgrowth of the duPont family's interest in autos?

I think you'll find details on this and other interesting bits of early GM history in Alfred Sloan's book. If you can't find a copy for sale, it should be in your local library.

No doubt, the DD's owned a great deal of GM stock (still do). BUT, then again, there r many well moneyed families that own GM stock as well as other companies. IF anyone owns anyone else then most likely it is that GM OWNS DD. At those levels of financial power it is often difficult to tell who owns who!
