Betting on booze Yesterday, Ohio governor John Kasich announced a new plan to pay for the state’s economic development efforts. They will be paid for with booze. The state is turning over its liquor distribution business (in Ohio, wholesale liquor sales are handled by the state). In exchange, JobsOhio will pay the state $1.4 billion up front. JobsOhio is a private, non-profit group created last year to replace the Ohio Department of Development.

More Michigan kids in poverty The Michigan League for Human Services released its latest Data Book on child welfare. The news is not great. Nearly one in four MIchigan children live in poverty. Abuse cases are rising. The report is part of the Annie E. Casey Foundation’s Kids Count. Kids Count keeps data on child welfare for all states.

Ride on Sales were up 12% last quarter at Milwaukee, Wisc.-based Harley Davidson. That helped fuel a profit of $105.7 million for the quarter.

The BLM and the MTP A group of business leaders in Michigan will unveil their latest turnaround plan for the state at 10 a.m. EST today. According to MiBiz.com, which will stream the event live, “Business Leaders for Michigan (BLM) will roll out its 2012 Michigan Turnaround Plan (MTP)” and the announcement will take place at Ford’s Research and Innovation Center (RIC). Apparently, a major step in Michigan’s turnaround is turning everything into an acronym.



CHICAGO – Over the past decade, the Midwest has led the nation in creating the biggest pockets of poverty. That’s the headline from a report from the Brookings Instituition, which was released today.

After a national decline in the 1990s, the population of poverty-stricken neighborhoods rose 30 percent in the last decade. (A poverty-stricken neighborhood is one in which at least 40 percent of the people live below the poverty line. In 2010, that was defined as $22,314 for a family of four.)

In our region, concentrated poverty — meaning people living in these neighborhoods — has doubled. The Great Lakes metropolitan areas of Toledo, Youngstown, Detroit and Dayton have experienced some of the largest increases among all metropolitan areas for concentrated poverty.

The analysis comes from federal data from the 2000 Census and the American Community Surveys from 2005 to 2009.

Changing Gears will be covering this issue in greater depth over the coming weeks. But in the meantime, here’s a video from Brooking summarizing the results. You can read the entire report here.
