During the election we heard about Ohio?s Economy

Much of what we heard in the mass media about Ohio and the down and out economy was the fiction of spin-doctors of politics who wanted to oust the current sitting President. On further review and first hand observation and experience Cincinnati has people moving in and economic expansion. It is in a good spot with decent quality of life, plenty of jobs and an expanding set of suburbs. Just cross the river into KY and you get a glimpse of the reality.

With too much traffic causing people to leave Columbus and job losses around the Indiana area after large lay offs at companies such as Delphi which effects the regions surrounding those plants for as far as 60-80 miles in all directions. The nature of manufacturing, robotics, NAFTA, China Labor issues and strong Unions affecting productivity up and above the reality thresh hold have been foretold previously by names like Deming, Perot, Iacocca, Ford Jr., Fredrick Winslow Taylor and all the folks who study Finite Capacity Scheduling and the previous versions of the same basic theories.

Can one really say that the President's economic policy is to blame for the world's shifting demographic or redline running auto industry? Cleveland was painted as one of the worst economic train wrecks of modern times and used to point out why we must change the leadership. All that was smoke and mirrors and Cincinnati is doing fine considering its demographic and location. Much of the money has flowed across the river into adjacent KY suburbs, but continues to flow within the region for the benefit of the whole area. When studying demographics of such regions it is imperative that just because you are on a state line does not mean you can divide the whole and show one part as the norm. Business owners should re-look at Cinnicinatti, OH with all its suburbs as a place to expand their outlets.
