FOCIS Symposium on The Michigan Economy
FOCIS (Forum on Contemporary Issues in Society) directed by Dr. Irvin D. Reid, president emeritus of Wayne State University, presented a day long symposium this past week exploring issues that hinder growth in Michigan's economy and analyzing factors that could energize our long awaited recovery. Speakers included Dr. Alice Rivlin, senior fellow in Economic Studies at the Brookings Institute as well as many knowledgeable panelists. We learned that many positive things are going on in Michigan to create jobs, security and change.
