This accessible, engaging text examines the impact of the trends that have shaped Michigan's economy, and offers innovative solutions to the current economic crisis. Charles Ballard's illuminating book explores the structure of Michigan's economy, including its roots in agriculture, the rise and fall of the automotive industry, and the long-term decline of manufacturing. Ballard proposes that investing in education to create a highly skilled workforce can help Michigan's people to compete in the rapidly evolving global economy. Discussing the state's transportation infrastructure, environment, public expenditures, and tax system, Ballard describes how changes in attitudes, policies, and political institutions will help to promote economic recovery and growth.
