The Week in Review for July 18th 2016, a look at business news you may have missed.
There are often issues that we can consider as controversial or debatable. Each week Dr. David Mielke presents one of these issues to give you Something to Think About. The topic for Monday is "A Matter of Degrees." There has been a long running policy battle about whether community colleges in Michigan should be allowed to offer bachelors degrees.

A separate bill has been stalled for more than a year that would allow community colleges to offer a limited number of bachelor degree programs. Do we need more 4-year degree programs along with what is already being offered by Michigan's 15 universities? Will the potential competition for students lead to what some say is already over-capacity at the 15 universities at a time when college age students in Michigan are declining? Should the legislature pass bills to effectively stop community colleges from offering new bachelor programs
