Michael Smitka, professor of economics in the Williams School of Commerce, Economics and Politics at W&L, has focused his research on the Japanese and U.S. auto industries, especially comparative analysis of the automotive parts industry and industry cost structures.

As Congress contemplated various scenarios regarding a potential bailout of the U.S. automobile industry, Smitka was interviewed by WVTF Public Radio in Roanoke about the potential impact of the collapse and where the blame for the current crisis lies.
