Lou Glazer, who heads the nonprofit think tank Michigan Future Inc., has never been shy about his opinion on what Michigan needs to compete as a worldclass economy, destination, or community. In a Q&A he advocates for a better educated workforce and more progressive cities.
"Culture ends up being the most important ingredient. Learning, entrepreneurship and being (welcoming) to all. Michigan’s having problems with all of them.
You need cars less because all of these cities are walkable.
That’s what’s missing in Michigan."
