Lessons from California

This is a quote from Joel Kotkin's latest column at

"The newly released Census reports reveal that California faces a profound gap between the cities where people are moving to and the cities that hold all the political power."  That gap creates for a collision of state-level economic policy and the counties in growing suburbs that are working to meet the needs of industry in the state.

He might as well have been talking about Ohio in recent years.  Yikes.

Hopefully, Ohio's similarity with California stops from here on and the suburbs that have fueled Ohio's only growing places are given substantial seats at the table in economic development in the future.
