Ohio drops in latest Forbes rankings of Best States for Business

Ted Strickland, this is your fault.

Each year, Forbes Magazine ranks the best states for business.

Last year Ohio was 37th. This year Ohio is 38th.

But it gets worse. Much worse.

In the key "economic climate" portion of the rankings, which reflects job, income and gross state product growth as well as unemployment and presence of big companies, Ohio comes in at 46th.


And thanks to Strickland's failure to instill any confidence in the state, our labor force ranking sits at 47th.

Ted Strickland, this is your fault.


  1. 12th in quality of life. 12th in regulatory environment. John Kasich claims that Strickland's regulatory reform efforts in Ohio have failed, but we're now 12th in the nation as a result.

    Kasich lied.

  2. I wonder what kind of signal Strickland sent to businesses when he and Fisher threatened lawsuits when Airborne Express said it was leaving Wilmington. Does this fall into the category of 'regulation'?

  3. Per usual ME picks the pepper out of the fly poop. I wonder how long the quality of life will be 12th when business refuse to stay or locate in the State.


No profanity, keep it clean.
