"The US cannot exist as as consumer/service economy in the manner of Las Vegas," says Stokes, "and expect to maintain its status, in symbiotic relationship with Great Britain, as THE world power economically and militarily."
Moreover, Stokes is convinced, along with colleagues in the US policy shaping arena inclusive of the United States-China Economic and Security Commission, that US, European and Asian companies are at profound risk of losing virtually all control of manufacturing operations in China.
Stokes has proven capable of discussing virtually every aspect of auto industry analysis with a particular focus on the China presence of western car firms. He can discuss the risk/benefit of such presence by GM, Ford, Chrysler, the Europeans inclusive of VW; and the Japanese car companies who have been declared for all intents and purposes "enemies of the state". Among other topics: whether the "bailout" of GM and Chrysler was really necessary and why Ford refused; the uncomfortable role that Wall Street played in creating a circumstance that made GM, Ford and Chrysler vulnerable to offshore takeover in the interest of short term gain.
GM Bankruptcy/TATA/Jaguar Land Rover
Stokes was directly involved in an effort to stop the declaration of GM bankruptcy through revaluation of global assets; coordinated with concerned European governments -excluding Germany - to prevent GM's attempts to offload Opel resulting in an intervention by those governments; and a very specific role in changing the circumstances under which the Jaguar/Land Rover sale to TATA would occur by bringing Mahindra and Mahindra back to the acquisition table in conjunction with one of the world's most powerful investment banking institutions working through Ford's then CFO.
Among archived industrial base preservation activities, Stokes helped prevent the
Kerkorian takeover of Chrysler by bringing a "White Knight" into the mix and presented
to the Chrysler board through a senior communications executive. The intervention was
conveyed during an overseas call from Tokyo during the 1995 Tokyo Motor Show. It is now possible to reveal that the late Sir Alex Trotman approved Ford Motor Company's acting in this capacity following a lengthy interaction with Stokes during a Ford media program.
On the aerospace side, a recent analysis of Boeing Dreamliner with specific focus on the issues of a nearly unprecedented conjoining of composites to metal within critical aircraft structure, induced a rethinking of this approach and questioned, as did a GAO analysis the viability, accuracy and appropriateness of FAA certification processes foraircraft extensively utilizing composites. (Google -Boeing Dreamliner Analysis).
Stokes, along with national security strategist and Walsh College Academician Dr. Sheila Ronis, has been one of the strongest voices in advocating Boeing C-17 Globemaster III Long Beach production line continuance and preservation of over 250,000 core manufacturing positions in the US - when one correctly invokes Keynesian Economic Multipliers - of which at least 5,000 are in California.

Afghanistan Emergency Airlift Relief Mission
Lastly,in his capacity as Managing Director of Global HeavyLift Holdings, Inc, an entity involved in the creation of a new air transportation industry subset, Stokes has just completed coordination, in conjunction with Kalitta Air US, DHL UK, AviaPartner and Fast Forward Freight of Belgium, and the British Afghan Women's Society, of a second emergency private airlift relief mission into the refugee camps of Kabul, Afghanistan. The mission was named "Deadra's Flight" in honor of Stokes'
wife who recently succumbed to illness.
He will be available throughout the media preview and during the public show.
