The MPI will provide the state of Michigan and its citizens with strategies based on MSU and other university and think-tank research that have the potential to return the state to a place among the most prosperous places in the world. From mid-April to mid-June, 100 training programs will be offered across the state by LPI and MSUE educators in over 50 locations. Three separate training programs are being offered:
New Economy 101 will describe how Michigan's present economic circumstances developed, and emphasize that because Michigan has many assets there is good reason to be hopeful about our economic future.
New Economy 201 will focus on a simple common vision and basic goals for prosperity; it will describe in detail Michigan's critical assets and then identify place-based strategies to help us create new prosperity on a regional basis.
New Economy 301 will address detailed economic analyses that can be performed to help inform regional strategic growth plans and the key strategies necessary to implement those plans.
The first program is intended for all audiences. The second and third programs are intended for stakeholders, economic development professionals and those people that attended the first program and desire more information.For more information visit : www.landpolicy.msu.edu/MPI.
