Chrysler expects to make money in 2012

Perhaps as a way to get a bankruptcy judge to allow its Chapter 11 to go forward, Chrysler says it will make money in 2012.

If a court believes that assertion, it may be easier to believe that the company does not have to be liquidated. A number of creditors would like to see a sale to Fiat knocked down in favor of selling off Chrysler's assets to the highest bidder.
