Michigan's economic picture in 2012 - stable, but uneven
Michigan’s economy will continue to stabilize in 2012.
That’s the prediction of Comerica Bank’s chief economist Robert Dye. Dye expects Michigan’s auto and furniture industries will continue to show some growth, but he expects economic growth will be uneven in Michigan.
“I would say that central, west Michigan…the Kalamazoo, Lansing, Grand Rapids…Ann Arbor…will probably show a little bit stronger gains than…southeast Michigan," said Dye.
Dye said Michigan’s economic picture in 2012 will be heavily dependent on what happens in Europe and Asia.
