On Tuesday, October 19 at noon the Council will host Steven Rattner for a discussion of the Obama administration’s efforts to restructure the automotive industry in 2008. As counselor to the Secretary of the Treasury in 2008, Rattner led this intervention during one of the country’s severest economic crises of recent history. He will provide a first-hand account into the clash between Washington and Detroit, as well as explore the implications the administration’s economic decisions had on automotive plants in Europe and elsewhere abroad.
