A study released Tuesday by the American Automotive Policy Council warned that the United States could lose 2,600 auto industry jobs and thousands more in the broader economy if Japan is allowed to join a proposed free trade pact at the center of President Obama's trade agenda.
The study was paid for by Ford Motor Co., which has led the U.S. auto industry charge against Japan joining talks on the proposed Trans-Pacific Partnership pact. It was prepared by the Center for Automotive Research in Ann Arbor.
