"Historically, it's been 'what makes the economy move?'" Granholm said on ABC's "This Week." "What is it that we all need to ensure we as citizens are productive?"


"In 1990 we wouldn't have thought that broadband was infrastructure because it wasn't on the scene yet, but of course we have broadband in every pocket of the nation."
