The Two Tomorrows

The Two Tomorrows

Regional priorities for a better tomorrow from the Fund for Our Economic Future

Being average is a choice. So is being extraordinary. Which tomorrow will you choose?

In February 2018, our Fund released The Two Tomorrows report, a call for Northeast Ohio to choose a more extraordinary tomorrow by embracing strategies in job creation, job preparation and job access with an explicit focus on combating systemic racial exclusion. In the coming years, we must build a continuously regenerating economy that creates good jobs and rising incomes for everyone. To do this, we must understand the issues holding us back from inclusive transformation and align our regional priorities accordingly. Currently, our region is plagued by a legacy industry mix, lower-than-average educational attainment rates, the outmigration of people and jobs, persistent concentrations of poverty, and racial disparities that continue to undermine our economic competitiveness.

The Two Tomorrows is not a plan. It is a call for a collective sense of purpose – for choosing a better tomorrow. Access an executive summary here and complete the form at right to download the full report.

The Two Tomorrows

Which Tomorrow Will You Choose?

Northeast Ohio is faced with the challenge of deciding between two tomorrows. One where it is average, where a legacy industry mix, lower-than-average educational attainment rates, the outmigration of people and jobs, persistent concentrations of poverty, and racial disparities continue to undermine its economic competitiveness. The other where it is extraordinary, where it embraces strategies in job creation, job preparation and job access to fully realize its potential, achieve economic growth, and increase access to opportunity for all people.

In the coming years, we must build a continuously regenerating economy that creates good jobs and rising incomes for everyone.To do this, we must understand the issues holding us back from inclusive transformation and align our regional priorities accordingly.

It is time to redefine how we measure progress toward a better tomorrow.

The goal: A continuously regenerating economy creating good jobs and rising incomes for everyone.

What does this mean? How should progress toward this goal be measured? How is the region doing today? To learn more, download the Growth and Opportunity Scorecards for Northeast Ohio and its MSAs here.
