Michigan felt the recession much earlier than the rest of the country. That, coupled with the decline of the automobile industry, has forced the state to rethink its future.
Steve Inskeep, joined by author Richard Florida and community activist Luther Keith, hosts a chat that looks at what is and is not working in Michigan, how the state retools its economy for the future, and what this state tells us about the rest of the country.
We also want to hear from you. Tell us how your city or state is trying to build its economy of the future. What's working? What's not? What can the rest of America learn from you?
Start the conversation now and join us Thursday at noon ET for the live chat.
