In the first hour of my show Thursday morning, I will be interviewing Michael LaFaive, who has been the director of the Morey Fiscal Policy Initiative for the Mackinac Center for Public Policy since 1995.

We will be discussing his latest article titled "Economic Freedom Gains in Michigan."

What does economic freedom mean?

How does economic freedom affect the citizens of Michigan?

How does Michigan rank on that scale?

What would we need to do here in Michigan to move up the list?

We will also discuss his article titled, "How to Cut $2.1 Billion in Spending."

Listen tomorrow (Thursday, Dec.18), to hear the interview and call in after the interview to give us your thoughts, on the Live with Renk show, Monday through Friday 9 a.m. to noon, to let me know your thoughts at (269) 441-9595.
