    Edward "Ned" Hill

    Tomorrow I have an opportunity to hear Edward Hill Speak at a local university.

    The following is a brief write up on Mr. Hill and his presentation. Has anyone ever heard him speak. It sounds very interesting and I would like to hear what others who have hear him speak thought.

    Economic development with an urban edge is in the spotlight at WM U Wednesday, March 9, during the Werner Sichel 2004-05 Lecture-Seminar Series on Regional Economic Development: Current Issues.

    The speaker, Dr. Edward W. "Ned" Hill, is professor and distinguished scholar of economic development at the Levin College of Urban Affairs at Cleveland State University. He is also a nonresident senior fellow of the Metropolitan Policy Program of The Brookings Institution. His presentation at WMU is titled "Nine Rules for the Practice of Economic Development" and is at 3 p.m. in Room 3508 of Knauss Hall.

    Hill edited Economic Development Quarterly, which publishes research on the development of the American economy, from 1994 to 2005. He is author of two books, co-editor of five books, and author of more than 70 articles, book chapters, and columns. He was part of a joint Deloitte Consulting-Cleveland State University team that wrote "Manufacturing Pennsylvania's Future" in 2004. "Ohio's Competitive Advantage: Manufacturing Productivity" was released in 2001. The Brookings Institution recently released "Slanted Pavement: How Ohio's Highway Spending Short Changes Cities and Suburbs," a study on the impacts of Ohio's gasoline tax.

    In the fall of 1999, Ohio Gov. Bob Taft appointed Hill to the state's Urban Revitalization Task Force. He was awarded Cleveland State University's Distinguished Faculty Award for Research in 1998 and merit award for research in 2002.

    Hill earned a Ph.D. in both economics and urban and regional planning from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1981.

    I will be there! Thanks for the heads up. I did not get anything on it, and no profs said anything about it to me.
    Trusting a DC politician with your money is like trusting a hungry dog with a raw steak.

    I saw him speak not too long ago at a statewide ED conference. He is a great speaker with a compelling message. Everyone involved in ED in the industrial Midwest should listen to what he has to say. He systematically pokes holes in the beleif that American manufacturing is finished, and that high-tech "creative class" economy is the way to go for declining industrial regions.

    Best line: "stop blaming China. We only have ourselves to blame for the decline of manufacturing."

    Refreshing.

    Last summer I worked with him doing background research for his presentation at the IEDC Annual Conference on "outsourcing trends". He's a very good speaker and interjects some good wit in his presentations. I found him to provide a very balanced look at the issues and data we were sorting through.

    Enjoy and report back if you get a chance.

    Don't miss Ned Hill

    I've attended a number of conferences with him and he's never failed to be provocative and engaging.
