Unemployment is declining, automobile sales are strong, and the City of Detroit has shed $7 billion in debt with its recent exit from Chapter 9 bankruptcy.
So Michigan’s economic future looks better than it has in ages, right?
Indeed it does, unless we:
■ Get complacent and don’t fix obvious problems (think roads!).
■ Or we do dumb stuff, like erect new barriers to investment and job creation.
Two of the state’s top economic development leaders will discuss Michigan’s 2015 economic outlook — and some fresh results from a survey of business executives — on Thursday at a Detroit Economic Club luncheon. More than 500 have already registered to attend, but there was room for about 80 more as of Monday morning.
