LIVE WEBCAST THIS MORNING: Brookings Institution looks at manufacturing in Ohio.
HAPPENING RIGHT NOW. The Brookings Institution is hosting a live webcast this morning of "Going Global: Boosting Ohio’s Economic Future," the second in a series of domestic and international forums being convened this year by the Global Cities Initiative. The forum will explore how metropolitan-led economic growth—including global trade and investment—are important for job creation, and how Ohio can leverage its position in the global market.
"Locating American Manufacturing: Trends in the Geography of Production," a report by Howard Wial, Susan Helper, and Timothy Krueger, will be released at the event.
Among the many panelists are: Dr. Gordon Gee, President, The Ohio State University; Bruce Katz, The Brookings Institution; Michael B. Coleman, Mayor, City of Columbus; Honorable Richard M. Daley, Former Mayor, City of Chicago. One panelist of note is Henry Cialone, President and CEO of Edison Welding Institute. (Mr. Cialone was a panelist at the Alliance for American Manufacturing's (AAM) 2007 "Keep it Made in America" Town Hall in Columbus, Ohio.)
