Next wave: Entrepreneurs shaping new Michigan

Detroit — A century ago, plucky entrepreneurs armed with vision and a healthy appetite for risk laid the foundation for Michigan’s rich 20th-century economy.

Could history be repeating itself? Because a byproduct of the fall and rise of Detroit’s automakers — and the evolving pull they exert over the the state’s economic life — is a refreshing reprise of the entrepreneurialism evoked by names like Ford and Durant, Dow and Kellogg, Gerber and Olds.


Unfortunately, our collective heads have been so far up the alimentary canal that we could see our tonsils, so it'll take a bit of time to remove it, but so far, so good. I'll be cheering Detroit on... from a safe distance. Seriously, our large cities (save for Grand Rapids) are cesspools filled with the 'gimme more' crowd. It's gonna take a while.
