HAER Project: Ford Rouge Complex
The totality of the automotive process can be examined here.
From raw material to finished product. This 1200 acre industrial complex has been studied by economists for the last 70 years as the world's best example of vertical economic integration. Henry Ford began production at the complex in 1917 and led the charge that made the automotive industry a world wide capitalist giant.
