(1758, Economic Table) argued that agricultural surpluses, by flowing through the economy in the form of rent, wages and purchases, were the real economic movers. Firstly, said Quesnay, regulation impedes the flow of income throughout all social classes and therefore economic development.

The State of the Michigan Economy [Mackinac Center]
Mr. Chairman, members of the Committee, I have been asked to give my view of the state of Michigan’s economy. In short, Michigan's economy is doing poorly and this is not due to a slowdown in the national economy, but rather shortcomings that are specific to Michigan. In the absence of reductions in the cost of producing goods and services in Michigan, the economic decline will continue.

For example, in her State of the State address, ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Defendant Jeremy Lee Ebersole appeals from his convictions of three counts of breaking and entering, three counts of larceny, one count of possession of stolen property, and of being a habitual felon. On appeal, defendant contends that the trial court improperly permitted the State to rely upon the doctrine of recent possession because the time period between the commission of the crimes and the discovery of the stolen items in his possession — between 94 and 216 days — is too long to raise a presumption of guilt. Although we agree that this is a relatively long period of time, we believe that the unique qualities ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
