A123 sold to Chinese firm

I wonder whether or not operations will continue under the A123 name?

What a joke. A failed American company funded with tax dollars goes bankrupt and then transfers its assets and technology to a Chinese firm.

Theoretically, they can take the same business model but do it more profitably with cheaper labor. Then they can turn around and sell American companies the same batteries (maybe of lesser quality). I’m getting sick of this.
