After a successful year, the Big Three move forward in 2014

Today, Detroit kicks off the annual North American International Auto Show.

The auto show features new models and makes of autos from the global industry, specifically American automakers.

The U.S. auto industry has been considered one of the successes of the economic recovery. And this year marks a new period for the Big Three, writes Joseph B. White for the Wall Street Journal:

In short, this Detroit show will mark the beginning of a new chapter in the U.S. auto industry's history. The era of bankruptcy and bailouts is over. But a new era of high-stakes technological risk, intensified global competition and shifting consumer attitudes toward the place of cars in society is beginning.

Several federal officals made the trip to Detroit to check out the new American autos:

Recently, U.S. automakers have been vocal about including currency manipulation provisions in the proposed Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP). Find out more about currency manipulation and the TPP.
