Report: Michigan must move away from manufacturing

LANSING, Mich. A Michigan group says domestic automakers' ominous slide and the national recession are proving once again that the state must move away from its manufacturing past if it wants to have a productive future.

Michigan Future, an Ann Arbor-based group, issued a progress report Tuesday, saying it's more important than ever for Michigan to prepare its citizens for a knowledge-based economy.

It says the auto industry never again will be the major engine of prosperity in Michigan, and that even new manufacturing no longer will provide high-paid jobs.

Michigan Future Inc. President Lou Glazer and University of Michigan economist Donald Grimes released the report Tuesday.

The report is available on the group's Web site.
