Stateside: Higher education at the core of Michigan's revival
Creating cities with educated populations will play a large role in Michigan's revitalization.
Lou Glazer, President and co-founder of Michigan Future Inc., says that globalization and technology are more powerful in creating a new Michigan than politics or policy.
“You have to be inventing what’s next," he said.
Glazer's new agenda aims to create a city in which talent wants to live.
To do so, he claims, there has to be a high population of college-educated citizens.
“The places that are doing the best... have a community DNA that values learning, entrepreneurship and being welcoming to all," said Glazer.
For more of Glazer's interview, listen to the audio above.
