Kotkin Primer: Part 4 of 5

The columnist is on vacation and advanced posted five days worth of columns where author Joel Kotkin writes about manufacturing and other Ohio-relevant topics.  It's all a primer leading up to Kotkin's visit to the Buckeye State in August as part of the Licking County Chamber of Commerce's Annual Dinner and a Licking County Workforce Summit.  Enjoy.

Joel Kotkin's February 2011 piece in Forbes, "The Midwest: Coming Back?" was a great read for any Midwestener, current or dislocated alike.

The piece also doubles for a topic likely to come in August--the falacy of the Midwest trying to replicate the coasts as a cure-all for economic development woes.

Check it out.
