Moment of Truth
Lies and Lessons of the American Automobile Industry (feat. Wells King)
In Today's episode of "Moment of Truth," Saurabh sits down with Wells King, Research Director for American Compass, to discuss the history of the American Automobile Industry, how the success of Japan's Toyota, Honda & Nissan nearly crushed Chrysler, Ford, and General Motors in the 1980s, what the Reagan administration did to save the industry, and the implications this history has for free trade economics, protectionism, labor unions and manufacturing in the heartland.
Wells King is research director of American Compass, whose mission is to restore an economic consensus that emphasizes the importance of family, community, and industry to the nation’s liberty and prosperity. Previously, he worked as a policy advisor to Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) on the U.S. Congress Joint Economic Committee and as a management consultant at McKinsey & Company. His writing has appeared in National Review, USA Today, First Things, The American Conservative, and The Daily Caller.
