New Leadership for America
Thank you. I'm always glad to be back in Michigan.
First the good news: It's Columbus Day-that means in Washington, the federal government is shut down.
Here in Michigan, the Detroit Shock are world champions again, and the Lions...They almost won a football game!
When Beth called me about coming to the Economic Club back in August, the original title that we agreed upon, was, "New Leadership for America-What Does it Mean for U.S. Manufacturing?"
Now, that's still highly relevant and increasingly important. With the final presidential debate this Wednesday, and the election three weeks from tomorrow, Ameri-ca's getting ready to choose.
In January, the new president and the 111th Congress will take office. Facing them will be very difficult economic conditions.
