Testifying in Lansing and How is Michigan's Economy Really Doing?

New hearings in Lansing in front of the Michigan House Education Committee on Tuesday, November 29, 2011 at 10am.  Parents are welcome.  Let me know if you are interested in going.

While considering attending this hearing, peruse Rick Haglund's essay on the improvement of Michigan's economy as reported by UofM economists.  Our recovery is strong this year (before the business tax cut) and will slowly improve over the next two years due to car manufacturing.  The economists have a hard time speculating whether the economy will improve more with the tax cut and they warn that the tax cut could cause a decline in infrastructure and education which will not attract outsiders (both workers and industries) to Michigan.
