The Business Courier and Cincinnati Enquirer are reporting forecasts for a positive economic growth pattern for 2013 for the greater Cincinnati area. Courier Staff Reporter Steve Watkins states:
“The Greater Cincinnati economy appears to be reversing a long-term trend and should grow faster than the U.S economy next year, a panel of local economists said Tuesday morning…
“Cincinnati is coming out of the recession more quickly and doing so in better shape than the rest of the country,” said (Janet) Harrah, who chairs the five-member Regional Economic Advisory Committee for the Cincinnati USA Partnership for Economic Development and the Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce.”
Lisa Bernard-Kuhn, a reporter for the Enquirer says, “…the local economy appears to be recovering from the Great Recession more quickly than other parts of the U.S…This region’s job market is rebounding faster than job growth to continue in 2013.”
This economic committee is predicting 2.4% growth for the Cincinnati region in 2013 overshadowing an expectation of a 2.3% national economic increase.
Why this increase for Cincinnati?
- Jobs. Cincinnati has recovered 97.4% of its pre-recession jobs.
- Housing Market. New houses available for sale have returned to four months’ worth of inventory. That’s about the same as they were pre-recession. Home sales are up 11.3% through September in Cincinnati and 15.5% in Northern Kentucky.
- Manufacturing. The area’s manufacturing business has regained 95% of their jobs lost since August 2007.
Dick Steve, vice president of forecasting for Integral Analytics (and another economic committee member), states: “We have a great opportunity for a virtuous cycle. Employment growth feeds spending growth, which feeds employment growth, and so on.”

It was a heartbreak loss yesterday for the Cincinnati Reds, but the team should definitely hold their heads up high. They had a great season!
Rob Daumeyer, Editor of the Business Courier, posted a great editorial today called, “Three reasons for all Reds fans to be happy this morning.”
Daumeyer notes the Reds won 97 games this season (only 5 fewer than the 1976 Big Red Machine); that Joey Votto was out of action for 2 months; and the fact the team is young. Read this article here.
There were 44,142 fans in the stands yesterday – the fourth largest crowd in Great American Ballpark history. And next year, there will be as many (if not more) fans rooting for the Cincinnati Reds!
