Hudson Institute invites you to a discussion on…
Aid, Trade, and Automobiles: Policy Options for the North American Auto Industry
Thursday, June 20
12:00 - 2:00 PM
The Obama administration's automotive policy began with controversial federal bailouts of Chrysler and General Motors that were followed by bankruptcy filings by Chrysler and GM in April and June of 2009, respectively. The federal government has also subsidized the development of electric vehicles and battery technologies, but with mixed results that included the bankruptcies of Fisker and A123.
What can the Obama administration do to improve the sustainability—fiscal, economic, and political—of U.S. auto policy? Will Congress agree to further subsidies and incentives? Or will trade policy initiatives, such as the Trans Pacific Partnership, become the preferred vehicle for helping auto makers?
On June 20, Hudson will host a panel discussion moderated by Hudson Institute senior fellow Hanns Kuttner featuring Christopher Sands, Hudson Institute senior fellow and author of Political Vehicles: Making Sustainable Policy Choices for the North American Auto Industry (Hudson 2012); Thomas Klier, Senior Economist, Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago and co-author of Who Really Made Your Car? Restructuring and Geographic Change in the Auto Industry (Upjohn Institute, 2008); and Mark Tapscott, Executive Editor, Washington Examiner, who has covered automotive products, personalities, and issues since 1985, and has held competition licenses from the International Motorsports Association and the Sports Car Club of America.
Please join us for what will be an insightful and timely discussion.
