A2: Michigan Economy

The Detroit Free Press runs a Q&A with Lou Glazer, president of the Ann Arbor think tank Michigan Future Inc., who argues that Gov. Rick Snyder is focusing on the wrong ranking to judge Michigan’s economic health – looking at the cost of doing business, rather than the financial welfare of the state’s citizens. From the interview: “Economic developers who court businesses tell me the first question companies ask is always about the availability of skilled workers. So when they’re doing business location decisions, they start with talent. But when they lobby, they lobby for low business costs.” [Source]
