University of Minnesota President Eric Kaler began his speech at last week's statewide jobs summit by saying, "I have the answers." The crowd laughed. He continued:

"I have the answers to the fundamental questions we're all asking here today. Where do jobs come from? And how do we create the jobs that Minnesota will need to succeed in the 21st century?

I'm not shy about answering those questions, because the answer is the same: public higher education, our colleagues in MnSCU and the University of Minnesota. We deliver jobs for this state."
