"You are provided with myself on how to interpret this but tell the stories this morning just heard Dick mentioned it as well he has in his newscasts about the build out of suburban collection showplace into a culvert nineteen care facility and now the story is that they have reduced the number of beds there in their build up from a thousand down to about two fifty similarly at P. C. F. center in downtown Detroit where about nine hundred bits were established in building a hospital extension unit we're hearing that to very few of those beds have in actuality been needed in use so we will double check on that and try to get you all the details on it as we go along these facilities are are absolutely critical for those who do have corona virus of course and the medical specialists who work there we appreciate them and the dangers into which they place themselves to serve others but that is that's what they do each and every day on the job welcome back in the program nice to have you with us and I I just love the the McNair center at Northwood university you know that we're hearing so much people making guesses about when the economy's gonna recover what are we gonna get through this week we stop the lockdowns we you know what at Northwood at the make their center they have started this optimism index now this is not just opinion okay this is based on actual factors that are in the economy variables that are being tracked to determine when or at what level we are right now in that comeback okay so here's what they use give you the the load out first on what the use the use the total U. S. covert cases total U. S. covert related deaths that those are available to them now here's in the in the index itself the U. S. covert nineteen mortality rate performance of the Dow Jones industrial average performance of the nasdaq performance of the Wilshire five thousand stock exchange moving to the yield of the US treasury ten year bond and this index tracks those variables in in coming up with the top to bottom and so they're based on facts and not on somebody's opinion and the man who runs it all is on the other end of our line as we speak we're so happy to have him back on the field the senior vice president of Northwood director the McNair center for the advancement of free enterprise and entrepreneurship at Northwood Dr Jim Nash Dr Nash good morning to you Sir are your doctor recommend a pleasure to be with you Sir pleasure to have you there as well with us and I I hope that you are healthy and that this virus is not to have that done too much damage to the Midland area to our to the residents there we are definitely blessed relative to what's happening happening in metro out he Tory Frank but we are not without having been touched by it up here in Midland no I'm sure not everybody is touching one way or another so is this this optimism index that you're running I really as I said love it because you're using specific methodology to come up with the index itself it not just Hey I think it's going to recover in may I think it's going to be back in June maybe in September you know it's not just a bunch of opinions like that this is an optimism index based on real figures and soul I I've got a salute you on that first of all and thank you for doing that because it's going to give us and an idea perhaps of of when businesses are are going to be in a position to start up again well I have thank you Frank and and we we do think that it is is giving us a very good indication as to how the economy is doing the thing that it is most important is that we're using the stock market as a proxy for the general economy and then were using the the ten year US treasury bond yield as a you're looking at how people think of the other things are going directionally where the economy's going the risk factor however W. another words right exactly and then then obviously the other variable was looking at how the cove it but having nineteen years is faring within the economy yeah there is good news over the weekend in that on Sunday both Coleridge def and our code cases actually I'd be quietly you know they're they're still working this is obviously and deaths but they were they were down and sold the peak Venta was being predicted by some of the models I actually came to fruition so then as you we take a look I'm sorry go ahead not just to say I'm sorry to interrupt but I was just going to say where is the index right now and what does it represent you whatever number that is what your index right now we're at almost sixty three and and we're saying that when it hits sixty five it means that the economy all the factors are moving into the early stages of of a recovery and so our our belief right now is that by the end of the month if we can continue to see other variables increase we think there's a real good chance at least in certain areas of the country and and and hopefully nationally we should be able to begin loosening up the constraints on the economy the the thing that I think is important also we just began tracking our testing Frank and you know you can argue that maybe we start a little bit low in terms of testing we were a little bit behind but no **** is one of our researchers he and I were talking about this last night that as you look at testing for example we're at almost three million test a couple weeks ago we were way below a million and that we increase testing from yesterday to today by almost eight percent and it's not even known so the fact of the matter is the American competitors free enterprise system in combination with a very active government is making up for lost ground and moving very quickly to do the things so that we can mitigate problems while we're opening up the economy Dr Nash weren't working people read the optimism index even the executive summary.

I'm a big fan out right off the bat is soon as soon as you heard that I was gonna say doing back flips that was music to my ears the north what ideas safe and growing exactly right exactly right so as you watch this this Auto Show grow year after year after year Sir take me through how it's changed well you know it what's interesting about it Frank is that it's changed in the sense that it's a lot larger today that was I when I remember the first one that I was that nineteen seventy six and then simultaneously as the basically the vendors are the car companies have gone through ebbs and flows in their economies of scale and scope their financial positions we used to get to a large displays from the auto dealers and it's similar to what you'd see at Cobo hall for the north American international Auto Show and then they they cut us some of that funding but never once did they stop supporting the students I mean you look at Lexus as an example Lexus's step back in Lexus is going to probably cut fifty to sixty percent of their auto shows worldwide they're here and they're here because you know these are the future leaders of the industry the use of the future retailers being educated here at north when they felt it was very important for them to be at the show so the thing that's just amazing to me is probably a hundred million dollars in assets trusted to a bunch of eighteen to twenty two year olds and it's just this it's a beautiful show you've been doing this for more than a decade at them you walk the showing you see every bit as number of cars and trucks that you see in any great Auto Show around the world yeah and it and it's it covers everything to it even goes beyond autos no I hear they've got they get some water sports the devices out here well the aftermarket shows phenomenal people forget you're the automotive aftermarket is four hundred and fifty billion dollars it you know it's it's roughly the size of you know one of the larger states in the United States in terms of its GDP and and that's just producing the aftermarket parts and servicing automobiles after they've been sold let me have you put your kind of a set up for a moment here to talk about the the General Motors strike and and what you're saying it sounds like they're making progress at the bargaining table and maybe coming closer to a settlement well I hope so Frank the the thing that people have to understand is the strike is not good for either side but if you're gonna look at long term production of automobiles in my opinion people have to remember that the markets changing you think ten years ago the number of cars we sold relative. to SUVs and pickup trucks and today you yeah I I was comedy to one of my friends were driving through Starbucks this morning there's this petite young lady stepping into a large Ford one fifty pickup truck it so the people that you never would have imagined driving a pickup truck ten years ago or driving pickup trucks and so the mix of the kinds of products that the the factories that we need that that's all changing and the other key factor when you're looking at the industry is that it's about sixty three dollars an hour for hourly wages at a GM factory wages and benefits is sixty one dollars at a Ford factory in in the United States it's fifty five dollars and a fiat Chrysler factory less per hour per hour we have the benefit of your talking forty six thousand workers that's ninety two thousand dollars an hour difference exactly and then but the point is the average decide the average Toyota the average BMW plant is fifty dollars an hour wages and benefits and so it's awfully hard to compete and yes General Motors we had some benefits tax wise except for coming out of bankruptcy but the union has to remember that any type of a of a benefit is increasing that gap of at a distance between what cost per hour to produce an automobile at a Toyota plant versus the GM plant in overtime you're gonna see S. producing fewer and fewer automobiles if if we can't be competitive in terms of labor costs do you do you see this as a sign that the UAW will set the pattern for Ford and Chrysler once again and we will not have walk outs with those companies this certainly is the goal and you know we'll see I I never would have guessed that the strike was gonna last as long as you know right now the there there in revenue they're losing between four hundred fifty and five hundred million a week in revenue profit somewhere between a hundred fifteen hundred seventy five million. we can profits about twenty five million a day. and that that's not helping anybody and that automatically adversely impacts our ability to borrow bargain you know the bottom line to offer higher wages to offer higher benefits of this year you know with you with companies trying to do is get more toward profit sharing and bonuses this year the average hourly workers gonna get almost eleven thousand dollars from profit sharing bonuses well that's that's not bad that's that's pretty good glue at all doctor their section come about great to see you congrats on another over show and the continued success to you and the Northwood university if we just transfer that over to the football team now while you're looking looking for a big W. today Frank thank you.

"Now from the Chevrolet display. Here's frank. What a pleasure to welcome back into the program. A gentleman who has been a friend for a long time senior vice president director of the McNair center for the advancement of free enterprise at Northwood University, our friend, Dr Tim Nash on the other end of our line because he oversees he overseas a lot of what the young people at northwood are learning right down here at Cobo at the auto show. Northwards got a big footprint here with giving their students more background on a career in automotive. Now, we know that they do much more than that than teach automotive at northwood, it's a full service business school. But this is this is where a lot of the auto dealers got their start that went to college northwood, and then went on to successful careers that are still ongoing the students at northwood come down and study here and are given first hand knowledge of just how things work. The auto industry, and Dr Tim Nashes. I know so proud from our previous conversations of all of these young people who take part in the program here. And I know they they reciprocate the feeling because they're appreciative of the things that they get to learn and the experience they get firsthand Dr national it's really really something to see good morning to you. While good morning to you. Dr Beckham pleasure to be with you. And you're absolutely right. Frank be our students benefit in many ways regarding the North American International auto show, our student serve as volunteers in setting up a booth and certainly in in terms of different types of presentations that different automobile companies in supply vendors, do they attend a lot of the workshops certainly things around the Detroit economic club's presentations. And so our, you know, when when you think about the fact that the Detroit auto show, the North American International auto show was one of the first auto shows in the history of the United States that it goes back to a time in early nineteen hundreds we were selling eight thousand automobiles in the United States and had less than two hundred miles of paved roads. And now you think about the millions of. Of miles of paved roads, the fact that we were in the final numbers come in. We probably sold again over seventeen million vehicles in the United States in twenty eighteen it is such a vibrant in vital part of our economy, the automobile industry and our students not just throw out a motive marketing and automotive aftermarket programs. But other majors get firsthand experience in that mentoring by corporate leaders at the North American International auto show, and it and it makes our program in our curriculums very unique. And in very hands on see I thought you were going to say when you got into that roads thing a moment ago that we had two hundred miles of paved roads back then in nineteen hundred and we still only have two hundred miles of solidly paved roads. I will let the governor of the state house instead of with that one. I hear you just kidding just kidding. But you know, what I think about what you just said about the hands on experience at these young people get when they come down to Kobo and see every facet of the auto industry. And I think back to what led me into a radio career in high school getting hands on experience being able to to broadcast in different places. And learn just exactly how it's done, and and that is applicable to just about every industry and to see it done with with young people who want to study auto at go into that career. My goodness. You cannot get better training than that. No, no, Frank. You're absolutely right. And that combination of the theoretical and the practical is what I believe all education from grade school to junior high to high school the university and beyond should be all about. That's that's that is real education. It absolutely is. And we also know that theory oftentimes has proven to be correct. But many times it's proven not to be correct. Or at least a portion of it is not correct. And it's the practical application, it's the market test. It's going out there and trying to prove something or get consumers to buy it. That'll that'll let allows you to understand whether or not you're producing a good product a good service at the right price. Well, there's there's a whole lot of news breaking as well in the auto industry. You know, this show be the last one that we're going to have in the wintertime. It's going to be interesting next year to see the difference as we move to a June show. And I I'm looking forward to it for one. I think it's going to be a great success. Tell you Franken it it's gonna it's going to have many advantages, certainly when you look at being able to showcase the city of Detroit being able to do a lot of and drives being able to have many additional venues spread throughout the city. It it certainly has the promise to be one of the great shows as it currently is right now, I think the real problem is there are so many auto shows in the world that center around the end of a of a calendar year in the beginning of another county air that I think you're right. I think that this could give Detroit that unique timing for a show that no other venue around the world has all right? Dr Nash if you would hang right there. We'll come right back more with one of the leading auto analysts in our state, Dr Tim Nash from north. We are.

"Not because the lions were not playing enough because they lost on Thanksgiving Day to the bears. But it was a sad weekend because the NFL lost one of its its most shining stars the owner of the Houston Texans a man named Bob McNair. Now, why are we paying so much attention to this here on WJR in Detroit? He's had nothing to do with the lions or anything else he Houston Texans. But Bob McNair was one of the biggest hearted men in the NFL and in the business world and the education world and in our country. In fact, he was the man who met with Dr Tim Nash, Northwood University and decided to open up the McNair center for advancement of free enterprise at northwood in the middle of Michigan. Dr Tim Nash, the senior vice president director of that McNair center is on the other end of our line this morning. Good morning to you and my condolences on the loss of your dear. Your friend, Bob McNair. Well, Dr back men, so it's a pleasure to talk with you. And in you, only you can Lawton individual at a level. He deserves by one of this country's great human beings. I know he he enjoyed the times on your show and thought very highly of you and in your program, while they're very kind of you to say I could never match what he did. However, you look back in in two thousand and two he's the man who brought football back to Houston when he outbid Los Angeles for the NFL's thirty second franchise, and he's made that a very very competitive team. But his influence in the community goes beyond just owning the Houston Texans. You look at when hurricane Harvey hit Houston. We remember that in two thousand seventeen when the rains fell for days and days and days and days seemed, but it's never gonna stop. There was horrible horrible loss of of individual goods. He donated three million dollars to the United way of greater Houston. And for the relief efforts and is fourth exhibition game was moved to Arlington and then canceled. Limit narrow family made another donation equal to the money that would have been generated from ticket sales to address the immediate needs of those impacted by the flooding and devastation, and you look at those and you just go man what a what a guy, but he went even further than that. I wait till you hear the story my friends that Dr Tim Nash has to tell about what Bob McNair did after that horrible shooting at the black church in South Carolina where that young gunman. White gunman went in and killed. I think it was nine people at the time and Bob McNair took note of that it was in South Carolina. But he took note of it in Houston, and Tim Nash. What did he do? Well, you know, Frank, Bob. A son of North Carolina. He attended the university of South Carolina and. Adapted that home state and his wife Janet's is home state, and it's just been near and dear to Bob for a long time. But unbeknownst to anybody he literally called up the pastor of the church and didn't want any publicity, and he paid for all the funerals of those victims. And then you took him he and themselves and his bride and players that played at Clemson, South Carolina that are on the Texans. They all went down after the tragedy and met with the pastor and some of the victims families, and you know, and that's just kinda guy Babol has always been he's he's a standup human being that literally loved people. Bob never saw colored never saw the never saw income levels. You always just song human beings as people that had great potential, and he tried to help people improve themselves and communities anytime you had a chance. Well, and that far overshadows the little bit of controversy that he he brought in when he said about the players kneeling for the national anthem. He said the inmates are running the asylum basically and everybody took offense at that. But you look at the bigger picture. Okay. He was he was trying to be illustrative there and nothing more. But this is this is one of the great men as I said, even big for education, and we talked at the time when he made the donation to Northwood University, and when we had him on the air with you, Dr dash about the commitment that he made let's talk about that in some detail about the McNair center. Well, you bet. Person that I've known for for more than thirty years. Yeah. I joke around. I I I knew Bob when he was just a millionaire, but. You just plugging the electrical plugs into the socket and not only in the company. Yeah. Yeah. You know, he was on the board of a little foundation called the free Enterprise Institute in Houston, Texas, and I was privileged to to speak their to high school. Teachers every summer when they did an annual seminar for high school teachers, and so I've known Bob for a long time. And then as you know, our president keeps pretty played a year for the Green Bay Packers. And. That's a great passion for athletics. And the two of us have a great passion for free enterprise. And so we we started to go down to some of the Texas games. And and Bob always welcomed the preseason the Nashes in a warm way. And as the Janice and. And. We started having conversations about how we need it. A think tank in Michigan that? Would promote studies that will help improve the state and help improve the country and after a couple of years though. In fact, we were at a game in Cleveland, Ohio. It was a night game. And. And we were leaving the box the Texans had one and Bob told us that he would be sending us five million dollars to start the McNair center for the advancement of free enterprise and entrepreneurship, and and we began the the center in the fall of twenty fifteen and that volume was actually on your show for the first time. Well, it was and we're going to relive part of that discussion with Bob McNair when we come back after the break here on the Frank Beckmann. It's Medicare university guy, Gordon here as you probably know Medicare is open enrollment ends soon in our local partners at senior health..

"WJR, Dr Tim Nash with us the vice president at Northwood University. You know, the economist he's been with us so many times on the show, and we're happy to have him back. Because today a northwood has released its Michigan chamber of commerce economic competitiveness study. And we've been going over some of the numbers of where Michigan ranks and overall. It's not bad. In fact, if if I was Rick Snyder right now, and I was writing I was writing a summary of my time in office. I'd be citing your numbers for Tim and saying you see we did it, right? We turn this around. I don't think there's any doubt Frank. There's a lot of. I'm very good things to say about the state of Michigan and governor Snyder and the state house in the state Senate has done a model job and should be looked at that way by the entire country. I mean, do you think about we we've been friends in and I've been honored to be on your show for a number of years now and Frank you go back to say two thousand nine during the great recession. Well, Michigan's unemployment rate was fifteen point three percent. The national unemployment rate was nine percent as of September last data out on unemployment in the state of Michigan. The Michigan unemployment rate is down to four percent. And the national unemployment rate is three point seven percent. So we have gone from by far and away the highest unemployment rate in the country to almost on a par with the the US national unemployment rates and a lot of that again has to do with the policies of being much more friendly to business regulatory reform and tax reform. So when you hear that that businesses aren't paying enough and they've gotten too many tax breaks, and we need to take another look at that during the course of a political campaign, what conclusions can can we as as voters and taxpayers draw from those kind of comments. I just don't think that there's there's any doubt that business and individuals certainly paid their I share if you look at the the fact that if we're going to attract business. Whether it be in Michigan county in Michigan or to the United States one has to compete a based on a tax system that's going to spur invention innovation job creation. And right now, there's not enough credit being given the tax cuts in a number of different areas. In the state of Michigan tax cuts have been key to growing the economy. The tax cuts at the national level have made the US a lot more competitive versus the rest of the world. We're no longer there the highest tax country in the industrialized world with the tax cuts of twenty seventeen. So the the fact of the matter is rich people pay the vast majority of income taxes the top ten percent of tax payers pay about seventy percent of all of the the income tax at the personal level and corporation. In the United States pay a disproportionately high amount of taxes versus the rest of the world. And and we're not just competing at home. We're competing in global economy. So I think that it's something I respectfully disagree with we need to look at lowering taxes, not raising taxes. So what happens now, Dr Nash with with your report, and what does the chamber do with it? Where do we go from here? Well, the chamber uses it to take a look at the the state of the economy, and and what we need to do better and more efficiently. I'm sure we will testify again before the state house and state Senate. We were honored that one of the things that came out of our first study was that the Michigan state house and state Senate created a competitiveness committee based on the the study, and so we we have the privilege usually every year of meeting with the house and last year, we met earlier this year, we met with the state house and state Senate and just presented the data and answered a lot of questions on what the state could do to be more competitive. And I think again, the governor and the state house and Senate have have done a lot of very positive things to to improve the the economy. Yeah, you're the one one thing that that is remains part of our recommendations section of the study Frank. Is that we have now been saying for seven years at Michigan needs to figure out ways to do to to improve the roads and the infrastructure in Michigan and simultaneously something that's been wearing for seven. Studies in a row is that Michigan has the highest automobile insurance costs in the country. And it's not even close. If you look at the chart Michigan is is almost double the it is double the national average. And it's almost a thousand dollars higher than the next highest state when you're looking at automobile insurance on average per car per year. Yeah. You get into a test the area there in how much government should be involved in setting prices in the private sector. But since we're requiring that everybody carry that insurance. It is governments business how much is being charged out there in the private sector. Well, and and let's face it. They'll hit a big part of it is that the government regulates a long-term catastrophic care in a way that is unique to Michigan versus the other the other forty nine states. And that's the the main reason why there's a very large difference in your study the data that we we put together looking at a number of different studies on an automobile insurance, Ohio's number fifty. So we ought to send the task force down to Columbus. And look at why is automobile insurance so much lower than it is in Michigan. I take a simple approach to this too. There's a twenty billion dollar or. So that's rough figure catastrophic claims fund that money gets invested. Somebody is making money off that prophet, and it ain't us. So. Yeah. Thanks very much. Dr Nash, thanks so much people can find it online. The whole report the whole the whole report is online at our McNair center's website, and it will shortly be up at the chamber of commerce website as well Frank. It's always a pleasure being with you. Thank you same here. My friend along ashes to you say caretake care, Dr Tim Nash from northwood lately, it seems like everything we use everyday is getting an upgrade from the bed. We sleep in to the razor we use when we wake up, but we've neglected one of the more impulsive products in a daily routine that old worn out toothbrush..

"Here. Visiting with the senior vice president corporate and strategic alliances at northwood. He is proudly the director of the Robert and Janice McNair center, Robert peck, narrow the owner of the Houston Texans among other things and a big supporter of Northwood University. You've heard him on our show before and he's done everything. Shipped for me. The starting quarterback job down here. He doesn't need me more. He's doing quite well, Tim Nashes here, though, Dr Nash good, see, you, my friend. Always a pleasure to see you, Dr Backman, and you always bring cigars, and you bring the pappy van winkle, which few people have heard of those are from Dr pretty and myself, and those are produced by the same company that makes pappy van winkle bourbon. And I think you'll enjoy them. Oh, yeah. I love the the rap on the picture of the gentleman elder. Gentleman with a cigar. And you told me story who is in. That is the that's the father of rip van winkle is supposed to be the the the argument that they make. So there was a rip him. I don't know if there was. A very expensive cigars. Thank you. So what's new at the McNair center? Well, we are getting ready to release our twenty eighteen chamber study our seventh that'll go out next week. And there's a lot of good news in the Michigan economy for that today. We've given you a copy of our automotive study, which we're we've released today with the show and there's. I think just generally good news on the US economy as we know the auto industry is slowing down a bit. But. You know, when you when you look at where we are as a as a state and as an economy things are things are good. Very good in many cases, Michigan has fared quite well in the last. Seven years versus the country based on our both studies if you look at per capita real GDP growth from two thousand eleven to two thousand seventeen Michigan was tied for fifth in real economic growth. You just go back to the decade before that there seven years before that two thousand three through ten we were forty nine. Oh, it's terrible two thousand three to two thousand ten if you looked at it Frank. The Michigan economy over that period in nominal terms. Not adjusted for inflation grit point three percent, we're fiftieth. We grew in real GDP at minus one point six percent. We were fiftieth and then per capita. We grew at minus one point three percent. And we're forty-ninth over that period. So now, we've made remarkable progress from the the period of two thousand three to two thousand ten how much do these occasional drops in the stock market is severe as they are five hundred one day four hundred the next how much do they affect a growth in the economy here in our fly over land? I don't think that they're right now if you remember in February the market was down about twenty three hundred points over two days quickly made a rebound. And then six months later hit an all time record high the market's been down the last two days this morning, it's up almost four hundred points. So as you look at the economy, I think that there's. A lot of profit takers more than anything, and there's a little jittery nece over. I think the next year in the jittery nece comes from higher interest rates, tariffs tariffs and the national debt. We ought not. We've talked about this before on your show. But the real problem that I see with the national debt isn't the size, but it's the size relative to increasing interest rates. And if you look at just think of a point increase in the average interest rate, the government pays on the national debt, and that can take debt payment up to close to a trillion dollars. We're going to go over by thirty seconds here before we take a break. But. How many of the students here? Go into economics in some some for every student takes. Four to five economics courses, while they're at northwood econ majors it's about one percent of the student population. But all of our students are well grounded in economics and free market economics. And that's very important. Absolutely. What business to going into to have that belief in free market economic system? And I'll tell you Frankie look at this auto show is a great celebration of this some of this country's gravestone enterpreneurs. And that's the automobile dealer new and used car automobile Automobile Dealers account for over a trillion dollars worth of sales in over a trillion dollars worth of our US GDP on an annual basis. Always good to see you. Thanks for coming by. And thank you for the the rip van winkle. Happy pappy van winkle my honor Frank keep up the great work. Thank you. Appreciate my friend. Ted nash. I'm.

Lisa Posthumus Lyons from the west side of the state the daughter of dick Posthumus former. Lieutenant governor What, what knowledge do you have what can you share with us about. About, Lisa, Posthumus Lyons and her selection after Candace Miller was rumored to, be the number one choice well Lisa Posthumus Lyons is, an excellent choice for for Bill Schutte balances Him in terms of philosophy. In terms of you know regionalism in, our state. She's very articulate very very smart she comes from a strong political background as you mentioned with her father being the former Lieutenant governor the state I'd known Lisa since she, was a little child, I knew she and her parents very very well and I think she's? An, excellent choice for Bill Schutte and Dr. Nash the impact of a Lieutenant? Governor besides the the obvious in in an election itself at the polls but in the. Job how how important is Lieutenant governor to the. Top, person in the state well I think that that keeps point Frank Governor has to be the the eyes and ears, of the governor, oftentimes performs, functions when the governor, isn't available but, I, would also. Argue that that individual must keep the. Governor anchored in provide descent when needed as it relates to, key issues as we can see in the last year there. Have been a number of challenges if, you look. At the eight years of governor Snyder a number of difficult times in the town governor has to make certain that the the office in the position is wealthier and and, certainly provided with contrary, opinion when necessary and that that viewpoint might have cost Brian Kelly as? You, look at it during the the primary You're you're. You're absolutely right it it may have yeah because Flint water etcetera etcetera you know that reflects on him too and so but Bill Schutte you know as I said you you fellas know him very very well what will he, be speaking at the symposium on on Saturday at bay harbor he will be speaking at the symposium Ten AM Saturday.

"Favorite people admit Michigan but at the top of the, list or a couple of doctors at Northwood University the president of northwood Dr Keith pretty on the other end. Of our, line. Duct, pretty good morning to you good morning Dr Frank we sure. Appreciate, the opportunity. To be. With you this morning well thank you appreciate that and senior vice president director of the McNair center for. The advancement of free enterprise and entrepreneurship at northwood you've. Heard, him on our show many, times before. Dr Tim. Nash back with us again Dr Nash good morning My honor sir. Log, ashes to you my friend, long ashes. To you Ingredients to you thank you very. Much I appreciate that it's good to have you both. On the show, you've got a big weekend. Coming up at bay harbor this Saturday is is your annual economic symposium let's start with Dr pretty. On, on this and we'll be gathered there and the purpose of it, well the purpose of it is to share the philosophy. Of Northwood University our belief in free markets and free enterprise and entrepreneurship this is the twelfth year that. We've put this symposium on at at bay harbor in north west Michigan it's obviously a time of the year when when a lot of, our friends of the university, are up in that corner of the state enjoying our great natural resources and it's. An opportunity, for them to hear from from esteems professionals throughout the years last year we had former congressman Dave camp, talking, on his thoughts on. What tax, reform might look like And it was amazing to. Me how everything being said. At that event came. True later that. Fall and so this year we we have our. Attorney general the state of Michigan Bill Schutte and Bill. Is is is going to talk about the. Economic of Michigan something that he obviously has a great interest in I would say so as if. He, is elected governor that that'll be number one on his list economic, future of Michigan but it sort of dovetails into something. Else that the doctor Nashes involved in and and that's the economic outlook for the state in the chamber. Study the Michigan chamber study which will be coming out officially at the end of September but you have your monthly economic outlook that has, been released and it's I, gotta tell you I read through it Dr nationally it's looking pretty good yeah I. Have to tell you the the US and the Michigan economy are literally firing on all cylinders the USC Economy has a very strong GDP growth if you look at the last four. Quarters it's over three percent, we're getting back to the. Strong average growth that we have, in the post World, War Two era in the US in Michigan Michigan, was in the top twenty in terms of GDP, growth last year in the top six in per capita GDP growth west you're a across the country, state by state and, so when you're looking at the Michigan economy there are a lot of very bright to go along with the US economy as we see these numbers those of us who, don't do this for a living like Docker nationally we hear. About economic growth over four percent and GDP growth being that high and, the second half of, two thousand seventeen seeing it grow. At three percent put. These, numbers in perspective for me well when we hear these numbers what do they actually mean in layman's. Terms well If you if you look at it Frank for Michigan is you and I've talked before the first decade of. The twenty first century many referred to as the lost decade and if you if you look at GDP growth, from two thousand, and two to two thousand ten Michigan average. Negative one percent growth we had literally lawn net, fifty thousand people and the the economy of the state of Michigan turned around. And is moving in a, dramatically improved position if you look at the national economy from the end. Of World War Two to the late two thousand nine the US economy average three point two five percent GDP growth from two thousand nine to two thousand. And sixteen we have just over one. Point, nine percent growth so we're, moving in the right direction both statewide and? Nationally And when you think about that four point one percent the last quarter over three percent for the. Last year and you compare that to an average of one point nine percent for the previous eight years what, we're saying is we are creating dramatically, more jobs better jobs companies are much more profitable and that's good not. Just for wages and bonuses certainly, over the long. Term but it's a lot of people, forget about this Frank It's so important for pension funds an. IRA when you think about how well the stock market, has done, the Dow Jones industrial average, was up almost, twenty four percent last year I, a little slower this year, but it's an annual page right now over five percent And Dr pretty these are. Things, that. Are discussed quite regularly in the classrooms at northwood as well and and they vote well for those who are studying at your various campuses, for for the future and, and the creation of new businesses and go out in the. Market and seek jobs right well. Absolutely Franken mean we have a a. Small percentage of our students that are studying true economics under Dr Nash and are going to become economists. And they're very excellent students but all of our students are going to be business leaders they're going to be running businesses they're going to create their own businesses they need to know and understand the macro trends drive the economy and win invest how to invest effectively and and this kind of information is regularly shared in our classroom that actually the purpose of the. McNair center. Is share economic data with our, students and to have them see the direct relationship between Economic growth and entrepreneurship all right a quick break here in our symposium on economics on the Frank Beckmann show with doctors Keith pretty Tim Nash from northwood and then we'll continue in a moment Message and data rates may apply earning your degree from one of the top business schools in the country? Might sound impossible to fit into your workload but what if there were, a business, degree,.
