When something is destroyed, does that actually help the economy by creating construction jobs? Do disasters like fires, floods, earthquakes, tornados, or tsunamis actually stimulate job growth? Only if people were planning to light their money on fire before having to spend it on reconstruction! This is what economists call the Broken Window Fallacy.

Energy and Manufacturing: Cluster Workforce Analyses
Read the Fine Print
Rating
0.0 stars

This resource contains two reports that analyze several of Michigan's labor market measures in the energy and manufacturing industries. These measures include employment concentration, trends, forecasts, key occupations, education program completers, and workforce demographics. These reports are designed to be an additional tool to assist in the implementation of the Michigan Industry Cluster Approach (MICA). MICA focuses on aligning efforts "“ initiatives, programs, and funding "“ around priority clusters for a demand-driven workforce system. A key activity of MICA is the convening of groups of employers to identify and develop solutions to address workforce needs. The findings within these reports are intended to provide a road map that leads to stronger partnerships and a more effective workforce development system.
