Looking At The Global Economy With Here And Now’s Robin Young

From the automobile industry to agricultural products, Michigan and the global economy are inextricably intertwined. On Wednesday night, Robin Young, the host of Here and Now, joined Changing Gears and our partner Michigan Radio in Ann Arbor for a town hall meeting to look at issues facing the state and the world.

The topics ranged from Chinese investment in the United States to whether Right to Work laws would make Michigan and other Midwest states more attractive to international investment.

Panelists included Linda Y.C. Lim, professor of strategy at the Ross School of Business at the University of Michigan, and Changing Gears senior editor Micki Maynard, a frequent guest on Here and Now.

Young also dropped by Michigan Radio this morning to meet listeners and speak with newsroom staff. Here and Now airs daily on Michigan Radio at 1 pm ET.
