Join SAE-CIS for an evening with Thomas Klier, senior economist in the economic research department at the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago. Mr. Klier will discuss today's U.S. auto industry, which is tightly clustered in a region commonly referred to as "auto alley", extending south from Michigan to the Gulf of Mexico, with fingers reaching into Ontario. His presentation will highlight the evolution of the industry's footprint in the context of manufacturing technology and globalization, two major forces that have influenced plant location decisions in that industry over the course of several decades. Hope to see you there!
