The State of Ohio

Ohio’s Credit Rating

State of Ohio
Posted September 4, 2009

This week the governor filled one of the many vacancies within his administration. Cathy Collins-Taylor was appointed to head the department of public safety after director Henry Guzman resigned last week. One high profile office that’s been open for months is the director of the Department of Development. But some of the state’s leading economists have mixed ideas on what the department should be doing – or whether it should exist at all. Bill Lafayette is the Vice President of Economic Analysis at the Columbus Chamber of Commerce, and produces and delivers the very accurate Blue Chip Forecast for the Central Ohio economy each year. Richard Vedder is emeritus distinguished professor of economics at Ohio University and a visiting scholar with the American Enterprise Institute. And Ned Hill is the dean of Cleveland State University’s Maxine Goodman Levin College of Urban Affairs and vice president of economic development at CSU, and is a fellow with the Brookings Institution.
