Recent SUV manufacturing plant closings have some people talking about a slowdown in auto manufacturing overall, a real bad sign for business conditions.
Or is it a shift? SUV’s are still popular, but maybe not as popular as we tend to think. If small SUV’s and other choices are becoming more popular, we may see plenty of business from auto manufacturing that is just shifting away from the bigger SUV’s.
We want the employment and business impact, so I’m hoping for shift instead of slowdown.
