About Bernard M. Wolf
I am engaged in research dealing with the rapid changes in manufacturing, especially in the motor vehicle industry. Change results from [i] technological progress,  new capabilities in developing countries that alter comparative advantage  evolution of global supply chains,  environmental concerns, business cycles, including the current severe economic and financial crisis,  trade liberalization or increased protection and  foreign exchange rate movements. My research on the automotive industry includes keeping a breast of what is happening in North America, Europe, Japan, Korea, China, India and South America.
