The six largest Ohio cities are expected to see growth slower than the national growth rate. But if you're looking for the cream de la crap as they sometimes say, the following offers a glimmer of hope:

"The mayors’ report also shows that the Cincinnati metro economy is gaining ground on Cleveland’s economy. Kuykendall said the Cincinnati economy should overtake Cleveland by the end of 2015 to become the largest metro in the state, and Columbus will pass Cleveland in about 10 years."

Considering the formidable expansions of Kroger, P&G, and Macy's; the huge Mideast jet-engine order at GE; and the sizable growth of smaller companies throughout the metro, this was hardly a surprise. Needless to say, expect detractors from everywhere soon chiming in to denigrate, in every way possible, such noteworthy economic news.

It is probably because Cleveland has light rail burdening the local economy and draining the tax base.

It's about time. I was wondering when it was finally going to happen. I just hope Cincy didn't have to incorporate the Dayton area into Cincy area to inflate the numbers enough in order to pass Cleveland. If that's the case, then Cleveland could incorporate the Akron area for their own.

I just read the article.The takeaway for me was "there are places worse off than here." Sorry, Motorman, definitely not interested in bashing Cincinnati, but it just didn't strike me as the momentous wonderful news it seemed to be to you.

Losses in any Ohio city are bad for all of us on a state level, less revenue for the state government services we depend on. Seriously, are we really somehow in competition with Cleveland? I guess I just don't get it.

If Cleveland's MSA boundaries were drawn as liberally as Cincinnati's (or Columbus, for that matter), this discussion is over before it even gets started.

I have to agree with that. At least Cleveland has rail transit, old as it may be. Cincinnati is in the process of killing its 1st rail initiative since the subway. That will be #2. What other city can lay claim to that record?

I love Cincinnati, but this current political climate is not going to elevate it up to the progressive views of either Columbus or Cleveland. And progressive is a term I absolutely hate, as I feel it has little or no actual meaning. But regressive I do understand, and that is where I feel Cincinnati is currently at.

Agreed. No one should be happy about the overall news.
