    How about adding Illinois to the comparison?

    Many of its “State Policies” match Minnesota and yet the conclusions might differ dramatically.

    One basic driver likely explains most of the difference in Michigan: the gutting of the Auto Industry.

      Our hope is that we can do more case studies going forward of both states and metro areas.

      Don’t really know the Illinois details. But my instinct is that they are not as high a tax and spending state as MN. They have a high per capita income but not great employment rate. More than likely their image on both policy and results don’t match their reality.

      No question the auto industry is driving our results. Have been for a century. But that hasn’t stopped elected officials from arguing that we need tax cuts to grow the economy and claim those cuts, not the auto industry, are the reason for good results when there are any and that we need them to get good results when our economy is bad. that strategy hasn’t worked, MN provides a alternative path that is at least worth considering.
