The State of Ohio

Plea Deal for Gutierrez

State of Ohio
Posted August 28, 2009

Should Ohio try to regain its status as a manufacturing giant, or should the state be chasing jobs in other industries and sectors? Three well-known economists share their thoughts: Bill Lafayette, the Vice President of Economic Analysis at the Columbus Chamber of Commerce; Richard Vedder, distinguished professor of economics at Ohio University and a visiting scholar with the American Enterprise Institute; and Ned Hill, dean of Cleveland State University’s Maxine Goodman Levin College of Urban Affairs and vice president of economic development at CSU, and a fellow with the Brookings Institution.
