Re: Why hasn't Cincinnati grown as a city?
I think growth in Ohio in general has been hampered by having to deal with a lot of the consequences of industrialization in the first half of the 20th century, which raised the cost of doing business in the state. As much as people want to blame jobs going overseas, I think we've seen a lot of companies move out of state to places with lower taxes and better weather. That being said, I think eventually companies and people are going to have to look toward states like Ohio, where we have abundant natural resources, especially fresh water, and a relatively low cost of living. There were reasons why Ohio and the Midwest in general were the center of economic development in the US for much of its history. I think companies and people have forgotten those reasons as they've rushed to move to warmer climates.
