dc.description.abstract With the national economy on the fall many have questioned the future of the country. The State of Michigan in particular has come into a very trying time in its economic history. With the future of the automotive companies in crisis the state requires a new strategy in order to survive. Michigan’s government has suggested that the state has all the assets to become the country’s leader in “green” technology. Governor Jennifer Granholm has said that the state’s “great W’s - wind, wood, water, workforce, wheels from the automotive industry, and even waste - Michigan is better positioned than perhaps any other state in the nation to turn our country’s need to preserve the environment and reduce energy costs into jobs and economic growth.” At this time the State of Michigan must now convince out of state or even foreign companies that work in the field of environmental technologies to move at least part of their companies to the state. The first step this thesis proposes in successfully accomplishing this plan is to instate a public education system in order to spur interest in the field and create a more educated workforce. This could result in a more desirable region for companies to call their home. en_US
