Washington and Lee economist Mike Smitka has been studying the auto industry for years. Events of the past few weeks represent a remarkable chapter in the history of the industry, and Smitka has been sharing his expertise with a variety of media. He’s had interviews with the Detroit Free Press and WVTF public radio in Roanoke. But one of the more interesting exercises was Thursday when he did a special Webinar for a trade publication’s Web site, AutoFinanceNews.net. The Webinar was titled “Collateral Damage: Fallout From the Big 3” and it drew a capacity audience, including someone from Wisconsin Public Radio who immediately booked Mike for a live show on Friday at 8 a.m. You can listen to the show here, either live or as an archive. When the Big Three came to Washington for the first Congressional hearing, Smitka discussed the issues in a news story for wlu.edu.
