Jonathan Smoke, chief economist of Cox Automotive, will share insights from his more than 20-year quest to understand and predict consumer demand and how it interacts with changing economic and supply conditions and results in sales and price trends that are otherwise challenging to predict in a dynamic and evolving industry. Jonathan will illustrate the interconnection of the auto industry and will chart where we are in the cycles impacting sales and prices.
