I read a lot of business publications. Most of the time I am not surprised by what I read. This one shocked me. Seldom have I read an article that at the end of almost every paragraph, I shook my head in disbelief.
This appeared in Fortune magazine under the title of “Hoaxwagon: How the massive diesel fraud incinerated VW’s reputation – and will hobble the company for years to come.” I know it is old, but I just reread it.
The hoax and lies were so ingrained and went on for so long. It is hard to believe how it all unraveled. And now, we watch Volkswagen recover and reset. This will be worth several detailed stories.
