Michigan will never be a place most people want to live because of our long...cold and snowy Winters.
We can try to get people to move here all we want but that's just the way it is. I've heard TONS of people say they want to move South after the Winter we are having. I personally love it!

More people = more sprawl, more congestion, more pollution, more infrastructure requirements, more demand on water systems, more required police, fire, schools, etc. Not to mention there is no surplus of jobs, so... = more unemployed on welfare.

Are the more populated states better or worse off than the less populated states?

I half remember a quote from an industrialist from back in the 20's or 30's.
It went something like this:
"Detroit - a great place to make money, a lousy place to spend it."

I believe the guy was from the east coast and I don't agree with it, but it has been our image for a long time.
