Foreign Competition and Productivity in U.S. Auto Sector

By November 28, 2005General

There’s been a lot of talk in the news these days about the U.S. auto sector, specifically, how it can remain competitive. The whole matter is kinda complicated which is why we were excited to learn that Martin Baily, former chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers (now with the McKinsey Global Institute) will present the results of his new study, “Increased Global Competition and Productivity Growth in the U.S. Auto Industry.” A group of top-notch economists (many of whom have come from the Federal Reserve), Macroeconomic Advisers, is sponsoring Martin’s speech as part of a day long event where they will also release a U.S. macro-forecast for 2006.

The event is in Washington, DC on December 14th and if you’d like to attend, contact Debbie Cason who can give you a great NAM member rate.
