The Auto Industry and the 2012 Election

Thursday, September 20, 2012

In 2008, we broke down the election map state-by-state. In 2012, we’re breaking it down by industry. Each week, we’ll look at a different industry that changed dramatically over the last four years and  find out how that might affect the presidential election. Catherine Rampell of the New York Times talks about the automotive industry and the continuing impact of the 2009 bailout as well as the president’s announcement that the Federal Trade Commission was moving against China, alleging that the country illegally subsidizes its auto part industry—and how all of that affects voters in states from Michigan to Missouri.
