Podcasters Take to the Roads, Look at the Economy and Cheer on the Schools

Our State of the State podcasters willingly tackle issues, questions, answers, policy and research on the hottest topics on the local, state and national stage. In this edition, IPPSR's Associate Director Arnold Weinfeld joins with State of the State Survey Director Charles Ballard and Chris Torres, assistant professor in MSU's College of Education Department of Educational Administration.

In this issue, their crystal ball is right on point: talking about a stock market correction and how tied together the economies of the world are. 

Look in to the crystal ball with them and beyond.
