Podcast: Howes on the incomplete Mich. rebound
Daniel Howes' Weekend Essay
Detroit News Columnist Daniel Howes and Michigan Radio are partners in weekly essays examining what's hot in Michigan business and politics -- and what it all means. This week, Howes says Michigan’s widely touted “comeback” is not showing as much bounce as it once did – or as much as its boosters would have you believe. Lagging personal income, slow population growth and rising legacy costs are deepening fiscal stress in local and state government that will only get worse with time.
