This city is an economic powerhouse and it beats out cities such as Atlanta, St. Louis, Washington D.C., Cleveland and Denver.

Columbus is nowhere to be found in the Top 50. Nor is Charlotte.

Just be proud of what Cincinnati is accomplishing. There is really no need to dig on either Columbus Or Charlotte. As my father used to say be confident in your own accomplishments as they will speak loud enough in your behalf. Let others envy you as you do not have to belittle them.

Actually, Charlotte is listed @ #43 ($5.4 billion), but doesn't come close to Cincinnati @ #16 (17.6 billion). Our city's status as a global player is welcome news--news that should be displayed on the front page of the Enquirer, but it won't. At this point, our city not only needs to capitalize on its location on the busy I-75 commercial corridor and a Brent Spence Bridge replacement, but on its position in the increased Ohio River commerce that will ensue because of the expansion of the Panama Canal. For example, killing the Queensgate Terminals (because they would have spoiled some Price Hill residents' view and interfered with a riverside bike path, etc.) was one of the dumbest business decisions of late. Those vital barge facilities would have provided bulk outlets for Ohio corn/grain to leave here for the Pacific, let alone other large scale shipping endeavors. Next, the combined strength of powerhouses P&G, Kroger, and Macy's ought to be capitalized on to help transform Cincinnati into a marketing/branding mecca. (And this is only the beginning.)

This is a very encouraging report for the most part. I knew Cincinnati was an important city with a developing international trade industry but to be ranked 16th in the country? That is really something. Nice to see it is far ahead of Kansas City which is about the same size. I got a kick seeing hometown region of Hartford which has only about 1.3 million people in its metro area is also ahead of KC with its 2 million size metro. :-) The only downside to this is trying to determine how much of this trade is with European nations that are currently experiencing economic problems from being tied into the Euro. If they collapse like Greece then Cincinnati's economy will suffer.

I was posting under the influence (PUI). Sorry about that.

Interesting article and great news! I also agree that it's just the beginning. I knew Cincinnati was the place to be.

Certainly one of them. A much better region than my current home in the KC area. I'll be out of here in a few months.

BTW. In another post I noted that you do some home renovation work. If I end up buying a house in NKY it will be a fixer upper. I will get in touch with you to see if you can handle any of the work that may need to be done.

Side note. I see that you moved to Middletown. I was looking at that area as well but had several people discourage me from going there. The primary reason is they believe the city is well on its way down into a pit and won't be able to rebuild and pull itself out. What is your opinion of Middletown?

I would tend to think Middletown will be buoyed by continued development along the I75 corridor.
