The Michigan Economic Center has released the results of a new survey with some attention-getting  numbers in it.  The MEC’s “Michigan Dream Restored” project  studied attitudes toward “public goods” -- all the things that our tax dollars pay for -- and asked hundreds of Michigan residents how important those public goods actually are in terms of  stimulating the Michigan economy.    

Here to discuss some of the findings is John Austin, director of the Michigan Economic Center at the Prima Civitas Foundation, which oversaw the “Michigan Dream Restored” project.
