Auto Industry Hearings

By November 19, 2008Economy, Labor Unions

The Senate Banking Committee has not yet posted the prepared statements from yesterday’s hearing, “Examining the State of the Domestic Automobile Industry,” but the testimony  was available elsewhere:

Don’t immediately see the statements from Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-MI) and University of Maryland economist Peter Morici.

The three auto executives and UAW’s Gettelfinger are also slated to testify before the House Committee on Financial Services at 10 a.m. today, the hearing entitled, “Stabilizing the Financial Condition of the American Automobile Industry.”

The other panel should have its moments of interest:

  • Mrs. Annette Sykora, Chairman, National Automobile Dealers Association
  • Mr. James S. McElya, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Cooper-Standard Automotive, Inc.
  • Professor Jeffrey D. Sachs, Director, The Earth Institute; Quetelet Professor of Sustainable Development and Professor of Health Policy and Management, Columbia University
  • Dr. Matthew J. Slaughter, Professor of International Economics, Tuck School of Business, Dartmouth College
