Contents Notes Each year, Rust Belt states average less than 2 percent of new growth, according to the 2004 Census. Yet, Great Lakes states are home to one-third of the nation's population and produce one-third of the gross state product. Developing America's North Coast: A Benefit Cost Analysis of a Great Lakes Infrastructure Program, promises that fulfilling the $26 billion investment (over the next five years) to implement the GLCS would actually produce $50 billion in long term economic benefits - not only paying for itself, but creating a net gain of at least $24 billion. In fact, there is potential for a new growth industry founded on freshwater innovation for heating, cooling, sanitation and food - an emerging magnet for skilled workers. Is there a financial advisor anywhere that would question such an investment?
