Arrogance and Accords: The Inside Story of the Honda Scandal

Front Cover
Pecos Press, 1997 - Business & Economics - 310 pages
"There was a remarkable lack of quid pro quo in most of the arrangements between dealer and Honda executive--no yen for yang. One of the club's unspoken regulations was that you could ask a dealer for something but could not promise anything in return beyond the unspoken agreement of a little back-scratching. Dealers who participated opened a pipeline to additional Honda stores andmore truckloads of Honda automobiles...To the tainted officials, every retailer was Santa Claus and every gift a heart-pounding rush. An innocent dealer gratuity of a fruit basket would turn a Honda exec into a crazed border inspector, flinging fruit as he ripped the gift apart to find a prize that was not there.
