Ole and Lena can rebuild Minnesota



“All across rural Minnesota, communities are under stress from aging populations, the continuing consolidation and horizontal expansion of agriculture, and the recession’s spillover impacts.

For most communities, however, there is a pool of strength that local leaders and state officials may tap to create growth and prosperity. This source of strength comes from ancestors and immigrants from northern Europe. Their relatives back home found ways to deal with the Great Depression and their legacy shows ways to rebuild after the current Great Recession.”

  1. Hi Julie,

    I honestly can’t recall where I found the image. I have deleted from the blog. I do respect property rights.
