Klier, a senior economist with the Federal Reserve Bank, has teamed with Rubenstein (Miami U., Ohio) to produce this book on the North American automobile industry, and how globalization of manufacturing processes have changed decades-old business models in very profound ways. This book analyzes each automobile company and breaks down the supply chain, emphasizing how overseas competition has slowly evolved into uneasy but necessary alliances within the market. While the heavy reliance on statistics may exclude this book from general audiences, much of the information here will be interesting to anyone who currently owns and operates an "American-made" vehicle.
