He was not appointed as Microsoft CEO and now he's in google's hands?

Under his watch, Ford was the only major automaker in the US that didn't receive a government bailout.
I don't understand how the economy works but if his work at Ford results in less firing and more hiring of employees, then this man deserves a huge cash gift on his exit from Ford.

Do you really think so?
I would've thought he's a long way away from standing on a street corner with a tin cup in his hand and a sign around his neck.
