Yeah, it's unfortunate that the Gov't decided relocate so many jobs... Oh well. I have little doubt that eventually Cleveland proper will come around. The surrounding metro is pretty vibrant and not depressed as people may think.

The state is suffering because of the recession, but really isn't losing any people or jobs. The economic growth is pretty much at a stand still, but for right now Ohio still has the 7th most people employed in the nation.

NC has a higher economic growth and population increase. But there is far more people moving into the state than there are jobs. This causes 10% unemployment rate, dead on with Ohio's. So is NC really doing that much better? Both states have wonderful upsides, but both have problems.

That's a quote from the mod GraniteStater who was replying to a post of mine.

Indeed, that is really what inflates our unemployment figures. One of the upsides is that hopefully, the slowdown in growth due to the recession will allow us to catch a breather and upgrade infrastructure and all that good stuff. And since we tend to attract more educated transplants, hopefully more companies will look into expanding and locating here.
