This study, commissioned by the Michigan State Senate, examines the forces that will shape the socio-economic development of Michigan over the next 20 years. It attempts to forecast the kind of future that Michigan is likely to face, and to analyze the problems and opportunities that such a future may entail. It also points to several areas where changes would be helpful if state supporters hope to attract people and regain the state's advantage as an automobile manufacturer.
