The new Michigan Economic Center interactive report, “The Michigan Dream At Risk”, captures what Michigan citizens say is special about their state and what they believe powers our economy. The report documents the continued degradation of key economic assets – education, infrastructure, vital services and our outdoors — and the impact years of disinvestment in these “pillars” of the Michigan economy have had on the incomes and lifestyle of Michigan citizens.
