After a brief review of the turmoil faced by the automobile industry during the past decade, we are given an overall picture of the industry today. It is a picture of market saturation in the developed world, unpredictable growth in the Third World, internationalization and automation in manufacture, rising oil prices, and no significant fuel alternative in sight. In this context we are asked to consider what the long-term strategy for the United States should be. Reference is made to policies adopted and proposed during the Carter Administration, and in conclusion we are told that the auto industry will be the testing ground for whatever industrial policies the Reagan Administration proposes.
