What's Driving The Auto Industry?

The New York International Auto Show is one of the biggest and most well attended auto shows in the world. Each year, the Big Apple provides the stage for the unveiling of some of the hottest new cars - from fuel-sipping economy cars to million dollar supercars. And while the last few years have been a little subdued, at this year's NYAIS, according to industry watchers, the flash is back!

Could the scale of an auto show actually be an economic indicator? According to Edmunds.com Senior Analyst Jessica Caldwell, it can indeed! Car sales are up, automakers are developing new technology and terrific new models, and people are returning out in droves to the shows.

Jessica and GM Head of Consumer Affairs, James Bell talk about why these positive signs are good news for the economy and what could be contributing to the growth. They also share some of the latest auto trends and give us a sneak peak at some of the most anticipated models being unveiled.
