Business Leaders for Michigan releases its latest benchmarking report on Michigan’s economic competitiveness next week. The take-away: Be vigilant!
- Vigilant to continue improving Michigan’s competitiveness now that we are starting to turn the corner into economic recovery.
- Vigilant not to fall back into bad habits like spending what little new revenue is coming into the State Treasury on things that don’t grow our economy for the future and pay down our debt.
- Vigilant to recognize six months of good accomplishments by Governor Snyder and the new legislature does not constitute a turnaround.
- Vigilant in recognizing we live in a global economy and that we have to keep getting better if we want to grow jobs and incomes.
Being competitive today is a requirement for growing the economy…and you’re never done striving to get better at it.
