For Michigan residents, the state of the local economy and the needs of an aging population are cause for concern.
This week on Michigan Matters, Carol Cain sits down with David Baker, the managing partner of Baker Strategy Group. The two discuss ways the state is fostering small businesses and the impact of Right to Work legislation.
Later in the program, Sandy Baruah, President and CEO of the Detroit Regional Chamber, joins the Roundtable to discuss the renewed growth for the auto industry and the importance of diversifying Michigan businesses.
Alongside Baruah this week are regular panelist Denise Ilitch, CEO of Ilitch Enterprises and Publisher of Ambassador Magazine, and Beth Chappel, CEO and President of the Detroit Economic Club. This week the Roundtable takes on the North American International Auto Show, the end of the NHL strike and whether Ilitch has plans to run for public office.
Lastly, Jim Dehem, President and CEO of Community Living Services, shares about his organization’s mission of helping elderly and disabled individuals avoid assisted living facilities and remain in their own homes.
Michigan Matters airs Sundays at 11:30 a.m. on CBS 62.
