Sales plummeted, and Jaguar's financial problems caused further headaches for parent company Ford who was also in the throws of financial turmoil. In order to cut its losses and raise cash, the Blue Oval sold Jaguar and fellow British premium brand Land Rover to Indian manufacturer Tata in 2008. Only time will tell if Indian management can turn things around, but new models like the XK and XF show positive signs of progress as they feature modern designs sprinkled with a fair share of classic Britannic charm.The Brits wanted them to pay for their salt, the Indians wanted the mothafuckin keys to the car, ahahaha, score one for Apu

United States corporations had a massive run of buying out Australian iconic brands in the late 80's and early 90's.

The boot is now on the other foot and it is US companies that are starting to be bought out by foreign companies. Budweiser now, General Motors could be next!

How the fuck does a beer company get purchased during a recession.

Recession => Less Employment => Increased Drinking => Increased Misery => Increased Profits!
