Jobs, oil prices, housing, health care. They’re all tied to the national and the global economy, and their state of flux has played havoc with the auto makers and specialty-equipment businesses alike. So where do we stand now? Is the industry pulling out of its tailspin or lurching toward another stall? Join noted economic expert Dr. Timothy Nash of Northwood University for a revealing look at the root causes of the financial crisis and a comprehensive overview of current conditions.
Dr. Nash provides special emphasis on the dramatic fluctuation in oil prices and the impact of today’s economic conditions on the automotive aftermarket. He is an associate professor of economics and business as well as economics and public policy at the DeVos Graduate School, and he has co-authored three books and conducted research and consulting for a number of Fortune 500 companies, including GM, UAW/PEL and the Motor & Equipment Manufacturers Association.
