    Mark Strand | Cox Automotive

    October 7, 2024 | 12:30–2:00 pm

    Economics can seem like a foreign language, full of jargon and complex concepts. Mark Strand will help break this down by reviewing the current state of the US economy and what the context of high interest rates and stubborn inflation will mean for the vehicle market through the rest of 2024 and next year.


    He will discuss trends affecting vehicle demand like job growth, inflation, consumer credit, and interest rates and cover current market conditions for new and used cars. Chad Blake from BraunAbility will join him and together they will review the latest market conditions and explore factors that impact our industry.
