I have a friend that is trying to find work in north michigan, he says that not much going on and many things moving out.
How much more of this can michigan take before colapse?
Is there any hope?
He has been told that many are depending on the water shore for future demand for michigan land. I dont know if this is a good thing to put your hopes in.

Umm.. N. Michigan hasn't had an economy other than tourism for a really long time. There was copper, and there was timber... but neither of those have been great in decades..

There's some farming (0rchards, winery), some furniture (from what's left of the timber).. but seriously -- Tourism is the only way most of those towns stay afloat.. that and Retiree's pension checks..
