New Podcast: Buckeye President Matt Mayer Discusses “State of the State”

March 3, 2010

As Rob previously noted, our friends at the Buckeye Institute for Public Policy Solutions in Ohio recently released a report titled “State of the State: Two Decades of Weak Job Growth and Skyrocketing Government Costs Pose Daunting Challenges for Ohioans.” In this week’s Tax Policy Podcast, Buckeye President Matt Mayer returns as a guest to discuss the 111-page report, which includes detailed economic profiles of the state’s 88 counties.

Federal, state and local government workers earn far more than their private-sector neighbors in the majority of those counties: in 87 out of 88 counties at the federal level, 85 out of 88 for state and 57 out of 88 for local.

Read the full report, “State of the State: Two Decades of Weak Job Growth and Skyrocketing Government Costs Pose Daunting Challenges for Ohioans.”
