Fallout from the VW emission cheating scandal

Listen 00:48:45

Guests: John Paul MacDuffie, Dan Becker

Volkswagen admitted last week that it installed software in 11 million diesel-powered cars that allowed them to cheat on emission tests. The news forced the company’s CEO to resign and the auto giant could face billions in fines and lawsuits. Today we’ll discuss the emissions cheating scandal, what it means of the world’s largest automaker, VW car owners, dealerships and regulators. Marty talks with JOHN PAUL MACDUFFIE, Professor of Management at The Wharton School, and DAN BECKER, Director of the Safe Climate Campaign.
