This collaboratively written book describes how one community dealt with the potential of its major employer leaving for a more competitive environment by revamping their own community to become the better competitive environment and attract the employer to stay. Considering the increased competition due to international trade many companies have left - as Ross Perot once predicted that great sucking sound as American jobs would leave the US for cheaper places to build products - on many communities in the US - especially those in the so called Rust Belt - the question on those communities leaders minds is how to transform the community to be so competitive the jobs stay where they are in their community. This becomes a very complex issue as there are interrelationships that can be built that tie the employer to the community as well as changes in tax structure and other issues and benefits that enable the community to become far more attractive than foreign environments. This is no mean trick and the challenge continues in many other communities besides those where General Motors is an integral part. Here in Lansing, the original home of the automobile, the challenge was great but the Second Shift model appears to have worked.
