Columbus, OH – The Columbus Chamber of Commerce this morning issued its 10th annual Bluechip Economic Forecast for the region. The outlook includes the views of Bill LaFayette--the chamber's Vice PResident of Economic Analysis--along with three other top central Ohio economists. LaFayette tells Mike Foley job growth for 2009 will likely decline by .3% or roughly 3,100 jobs, but some sectors will do fairly well.
