Who Really Builds the American Automobile?Streaming Video - 2010
Once a shining example of national ingenuity and prowess, the American car is now assembled through a constantly shifting global process. This program presents the fascinating story of where in the world a quintessentially American product is actually built. Focusing on the Dodge Ram pickup and tracing the origins of its components, the film paints a portrait of the global economy-a collage, as it were, representing hundreds of independently manufactured parts circulating through forty different countries. Highlighting the supply chain that produces radiator caps, the film travels from India to Tennessee to England to Dusseldorf as managers and workers in each location explain their roles in the system.
