The ghost of Henry Ford (John Lepard) kills time on Detroit’s “People Mover.”

U.S. Representative Rashida Tlaib discusses voting "no" on the recently passed trillion-dollar infrastructure bill to support its social infrastructure counterpart as a package deal. Then, a new film reflects on Henry Ford’s complex legacy by having his ghost confront it in Detroit, blending fact with fiction. And, a parent and an economist offer perspectives on the impact of the expanded child tax credit on families in Michigan.
