The good folks at the Brookings Institution continue to offer viable and timely public policy suggestions and commentary on America's urban areas through their Metropolitan Policy Program. This recent offering is a set of timely research briefs which address the economic transformation of the Great Lakes region. Before reading the briefs, visitors should look over the introductory essay on the site. After taking in this overview, visitors can read seven policy briefs, including "Strengthening American Manufacturing: A New Federal Approach" and "The Federal Role in Leveraging America's Community Colleges". These materials will be of great interest to urban policy makers and others who are concerned about this important region's future.
