Michigan’s economy continues to dominate the headlines. Much of the news remains bad, but we saw some glimmers of hope this week as well. As many of you saw, an announcement came just days ago that several automotive battery manufacturers are committing to new facilities here in Michigan. The news came right around the time it was announced that Michigan beat out Louisiana for a new 750,000 square foot movie studio, which could be operational by the end of the year.
I find stories like these energizing. Good news like this gets me thinking about what I can personally do to help Michigan’s economy. As I’ve written here before, buying Michigan products is an easy way we can all contribute to our state’s turnaround.
