Paul Taylor, chief economist, NADA, 2011 Automotive Forum on Driving the Nation

New York City, New York – Paul Taylor is the Chief Economist for the National Automobile Dealer Association (NADA). We ran into each other at The second annual National Automobile Dealers Association (NADA)/IHS Automotive Forum, “The Road Ahead for the New Automotive World: Risk, Reward and Opportunity”.

There are manufacturers saying that the Seasonally Adjusted annual rate (SAAR) of automobiles could be as high as fourteen million.

Can we produce enough cars for the consumer?

What does Paul Taylor think the SAAR will be for 2011?

Leasing is coming back. Why is it so important in the supply chain?

Are used cars a help or hinderance to the consumer purchasing right now?
