Here at Business Leaders for Michigan (BLM), we know what it takes to make Michigan strong again. We’ve reviewed all the data and research on how to make Michigan competitive for jobs and growth—not just in the nation but globally. BLM’s work is concentrated on developing strategy, raising awareness, advocating policy and championing initiatives. We developed a plan for moving forward, Michigan’s Road to Top Ten, that is based on facts and driven by benchmarking our peers and competitors. It serves as the cornerstone of our work and shapes all that we do.
If Michigan was performing like a Top Ten state today, there would be 26,000 more Michiganders working and $13,000 more income per person annually.
Michigan’s Road to Top Ten
Our plan is a fact-based assessment of Michigan’s economic competitiveness relative to other states, with specific action items to spur improvement.
We work tirelessly to shape policies, ideas and opportunities in an effort to improve Michigan’s competitiveness and make our state more attractive for jobs, investment and economic growth.
