Charles_Ballard_100.thumbnail.jpgFrom MSU Today: MSU economics professor Charles Ballard returns to Spartan Podcast with his new book, “Michigan’s Economic Future.”

“Half a century ago, the world was knocking on Michigan’s door. But yesterday is gone, and it is not coming back,” Ballard says. “If the people of Michigan are to achieve a brighter economic future, we will need to develop new ways of thinking, and new ways of engaging with the rapidly changing global economy.”

Ballard offers intelligent and useful suggestions on everything from prisons to roads and from taxes to higher education. More than anything else, Ballard thinks the state needs to snap out of a counterproductive nostalgia for the past.
