Chicago is a Mecca for commodities. Still finance, just not in the same form as Minn, Charlotte, Houston, etc

This is great. Seeing acquisitions from a private equity firm based here is HUGE in arranging financing for our emerging growth companies.

I see it was their second such acquisition in this young month.

EDIT: I was nosing around on CBIZ's website and I had no idea they were that big -- 100 offices and 4,000 associates. They make no bones about wanting to grow into a billion-dollar company. Now if we could just get them to move their headquarters from Independence to downtown Cleveland. :)

I don't think we can continue to wait for the new economy to take root naturally in our city. I feel like we need to pursue policies that encourage that growth more rapidly. That's the problem with Cleveland, in my view. It's not that things are going in the wrong direction. Things are going in the right direction in the city, but it's not happening fast enough. We need to speed it up ...

Cleveland today reminds me of Washington in the late 90's, when DC was emerging from the crime and corruption of the Marion Barry days.  Lots was happening, but it wasn't falling-ton-of-bricks obvious. I'm not comparing any Cleveland politician to Marion Barry; my point is the city was so used to bad news that it ignored the good, even when there was lots of good.

From three hundred miles away, I see lots of good in Cleveland today. Still, I can understand your impatience.

Don't get me wrong. I'm a Cleveland optimist, not a pessimist. I would just like to see the progress sped up. I do believe there's ways to make that happen

Absolutely. If someone asks if Cleveland is a business-friendly environment, I think the fair answer is both yes and no. We need that answer to be an emphatic "Yes!"

Article I section 8 provides authority to regulate commerce.

That means pass laws.   Or perhaps investigate the need for new ones.   Investigation of violation is an executive function.   But of course it makes for good TV.  Yes, I know HUAC was the first offender.

I'm not sure that this has ever been challenged in court.

To be fair, the Warren letter purportedly requests DOD to perform an investigation (addressed to DOD inspector general), not that Congress carry out the investigation.

Some interesting things from Skylight Financial, which moved from downtown to Ohio City a couple years ago. They are in the big office building at 25th and Lorain.

Skylight Financial Group absorbs Dublin-based financial planner Lighthouse Wealth Solutions

Cleveland-based financial planner Skylight Financial Group has absorbed Dublin-based Lighthouse Wealth Solutions in a move that expands Skylight's penetration in Ohio.

Both firms are affiliates of Massachusetts Mutual Life Insurance Co. (MassMutual). The combination, effective Wednesday, June 21, results in about $2.1 million of cost savings between the elimination of duplicate staff and real estate, said Mike Connole, a former managing partner at Lighthouse...
...
Lighthouse's previous office in Broadview Heights, for example, is joining Skylight at its Ohio City headquarters — where the firm moved to the Market District in 2014 — which adds about another 50 people to that space.

If you ever get a chance--visit their office.  Part of it is actually built on the roof of the building at 25th/Lorain, and has amazing indoor and outdoor views of the entire city.   I'd almost recommend making an appointment with one of their financial planners (which is how I ended up there).

I think they're going to outgrow that space in relatively short time.

No surprises here, Cleveland's long standing "meh" economy continues.

Summary from the BLS:

Of the 51 metropolitan areas with a 2010 Census population of 1 million or more, Denver-
Aurora-Lakewood, Colo., and Nashville-Davidson--Murfreesboro--Franklin, Tenn., had the lowest
unemployment rates in May, 2.3 percent each. Cleveland-Elyria, Ohio, had the highest jobless
rate among the large areas, 5.8 percent.
Thirty-six large areas had over-the-year unemployment
rate decreases, 10 had increases, and 5 had no change. The largest rate decreases occurred in
Birmingham-Hoover, Ala.; Chicago-Naperville-Elgin, Ill.-Ind.-Wis.; Indianapolis-Carmel-Anderson,
Ind.; and Portland-Vancouver-Hillsboro, Ore.-Wash. (-1.2 percentage points each). The largest
over-the-year rate increase was in Cleveland-Elyria, Ohio (+0.9 percentage point).

I tend not to follow the Labor Force Data series (worker survey) from BLS. It seems very volatile month to month.  It's worth noting that Unemployment went up, but entirely because Labor Force went up faster than Employment.  I usually prefer the Nonfarm Wage and Salary Employment series (employer survey).  Much larger sample size.  It shows a slow but steady rise in employment in Greater Cleveland.

Their "Areas at a Glance" tab at the bottom of the page always has the most recent data by metro area.  Just scroll down to Cleveland.

My first reaction is that this may be the result of the second-largest population demographic group in American history (Millennials) replacing the largest population demographic group (Baby Boomers) in the work force. But the data is that the labor force is growing. Retiring Baby Boomers shouldn't still be counted as part of the labor force. So there's something else going on here. Who is comprising this growing labor force? Where are they coming from?

How these wealthy Cleveland-area families acquired their fortunes

This seemed like the best place for this article.  Mods feel free to move it if it is off topic.  I am always fascinated by the history of wealth in the Cleveland region.  It seems like some notable names are missing from the list but still very interesting.

"Salties" has referred to oceangoing ships that have entered the Great Lakes. Now, Salties also refers to back-office employers relocating their staffs from the coasts to cheaper offices in major legacy cities like Greater Cleveland. And I suspect that's what Shelbourne is positioning themselves for with these and previous moves...

Brooklyn, N.Y.-based investor snaps up four more suburban Cleveland buildings
July 06, 2017 UPDATED 30 MINUTES AGO
By STAN BULLARD   

Brooklyn, N.Y.-based Shelbourne Global Solutions has acquired another four east suburban Cleveland office buildings for almost $54 million.

Purchased Friday, June 30, according to Cuyahoga County land records, the properties are the three Landerbrook Corporate Center office buildings in Mayfield Heights and the Metropolitan Office Plaza building in Highland Hills.

The seller, affiliated with Dallas-based Lone Star Funds, a private equity fund, owned the properties through LSREF2 OREO 2 LLC.

S&P Upgrades City of Cleveland Bond Rating

S&P Global Ratings has recently revised the outlook to positive from stable and affirmed its ‘A’ long-term ratings on the City of Cleveland’s previously issued non-tax revenue bonds, series 2010 refunding certificates of participation (Cleveland Stadium Project), and series 2010 annual appropriation bonds (Flats East Project).

https://clecityhall.com/2017/06/28/sp-upgrades-city-of-cleveland-bond-rating/

Revenue bonds are the least secure type of municipal debt; so getting an upgrade to them says Cleveland's stadium and FEB projects are considered safe and successful.

The Ford plant speculation was unrealistic since Ford is not looking to lease or sell the land.  I think the company was a little cavalier that they can just plot dates out and expect them to hit those dates.  Location decision takes a lot of research due to all the factors involved. As the company spools up it will add engineers from LA and probably WV. 
  Honestly, i wouldn't put the Akron-Canton area out of the running due to Stark state automotive dept and UOfA engineering as well as a plethora of buildings available that would meet their criteria.  There are a lot of automotive and mechanical engineers employed by various tire companies in Akron area.

^i would agree. It really depends how they are prioritizing criteria in regards to available workforce, monetary incentives and/or tax relief from various communities, available buildings, and price per sq foot of buildings they are looking at. Other factors are expandability of location and perhaps security.

Baton Rouge, LA leads US cities in construction, extraction jobs
By Kim Slowey  • July 19, 2017
Dive Brief:

When it comes to construction and extraction (C&E) job opportunities, Baton Rouge, LA, is the place to be, according to apartment listing and research company Abodo's latest Cost and Opportunity ranking, with the most industry positions (99.5) per 1,000 jobs in the country.

When looking at cost of living, however, C&E workers in second-place Detroit got a bigger bang for their buck with a median wage of $53,790 and monthly one-bedroom rent of $525 in July. The median rent in Baton Rouge was $798, but C&E workers there made only $44,900.

Adobo said because the Bureau of Labor Statistics combines extraction and construction jobs, its listing is a combination of metros with robust construction activity and a healthy energy sector. A number of markets in the Great Lakes and Midwest, including Fort Wayne, IN, Toledo, OH, Oklahoma City and Cleveland were among the top 10.
