Michigan's economy and the effects of its current tax structure and social policy are the focus of a 2004 Colloquium Series entitled Trends and Prospects in the Michigan Economy. Beginning in March, the series hosts experts from at least four in-state universities: Michigan State University, University of Michigan, Wayne State University, and Eastern Michigan University. Each session features authors who have contributed to the book on state economics, Michigan at the Millennium. Chapter authors of the book are university faculty along with other experts drawn from government, educational and research organizations who were asked to write in their professional area of interest. Authors were asked to present policy relevant information for today's policymakers and community decision makers.
The 2004 Colloquium Series provides an opportunity for broad interaction and an exchange of perspectives and outlooks on the Michigan economy.
