About Us

Each month on the State of the State Podcast, professors Charles Ballard, Associate IPPSR Director Arnold Weinfeld and Director Matt Grossmann aim for a lively discussion of Michigan policy and current events. They’ll run down three or four hot topics, pointing to research on each policy issue. In the first edition, they cover income tax cuts, Detroit’s bid for Amazon’s second headquarters, and the proposal for a part-time legislature. This podcast comes to you from the Institute for Public Policy and Social Research, where the focus is policy, leadership and research in MSU's College of Social Science.
