A new report from the Economic Policy Institute takes as look at the old Wisconsin-Minnesota rivalry from an economics angle. Spoiler alert: Wisconsin is worse off by almost every measure, including wage growth, job growth and healthcare. We discuss the impact of public policy on the economy and compare the economic effects of Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton’s policies to Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker’s.
