Fourth Annual
Wayne County
Economic Outlook
December 6, 2017

Wayne County's economy continues to be strong relative to the rest of Ohio and the nation. Businesses  are expanding, home sales have improved, and construction activity has increased.

Still, there is uncertainty about how labor shortages, the current administration and federal fiscal policies will affect this growth. Join us at this fourth annual Briefings for Business event (B4B), for insight into the challenges and opportunities that the local, state, U.S. and global economies will face in the year ahead.

Back by popular demand, the WEDC is honored to welcome economist Mark Partridge, Professor, Swank Chair in Rural-Urban Policy at the Ohio State University. Mr. Partridge will discuss the local, state and federal economies with a question and answer session to follow.  This has become our most popular B4B and an event you don;t want to miss! 

About Our Speaker:

In addition to holding the C. William Swank Chair of Rural-Urban Policy at Ohio State University, Mr. Partridge is an affiliate for the Martin Prosperity Institute, University of Toronto; faculty research affiliate for the City-Region Studies Centre, University of Alberta; and an adjunct professor at the University of Saskatchewan.

Mr. Partridge is co-editor of both the Journal of Regional Science and the new SpringerBriefs in Regional Science. He also is on the editorial boards of several other academic journals. He has published more than 100 papers and is co-author of The Geography of American Poverty: Is There a Role for Place-Based Policy?
