Transitions: The State of the Automotive Industry

On June 11, 2007, the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago hosted a conference on the U.S. automotive industry, which is in the midst of dramatic changes. Currently, there is a movement away from production by the Big Three automakers to production by foreign nameplate companies with plants in the U.S. This conference focused on automotive manufacturing in the U.S. and around the world to examine what is driving these transitions. Key issues discussed included: supply chain, labor, management, productivity and competitiveness.
