HORN NETWORK - UPDATE #18
JUNE 1999

* The Corporation For Enterprise Development (CFED) Monthly
Newsletter
There is no doubt traditional economic development policies need to
change.  Globalization, changes in technology and information services
as well as business restructuring have some political leaders
questioning traditional policies and programs.  

The Corporation for Enterprise Development has an interesting array of
presentations lined up for their June 24-26, 1999, Washington
conference.  

CFED is currently administering a Ford Foundation grant exploring new
federal, state and local options and tracking reform options for more
effective policies regarding incentives.  Contact their web site at
www.cfed.org.

* Sports Pork:  The Costly Relationship between Major League
Sports and Government - by Raymond J. Keating
For those of you concerned with the National Stadium rip-off see the
Cato Institute article at www.cato.org/pubs/pas/pa-339es.html, by
Raymond J. Keating, Chief Economist for the Small Business Survival
Committee and a partner with Capitol Hill Research.  This is a
comprehensive paper dealing with the issue consisting of a 2 page
abstract and 20 pages of history, cute deals, cost statistics, what's
ahead, examples of dismal economics, ideas for solutions and lots of
information citations.  It is well worth the read, courtesy of Cato and
Pioneer Network.

Thank you for your attention to this matter.  Should you have any
questions or concerns please contact my Legislative Aide, Chris Vaughan,
in my Columbus Office at 
(614) 466-4538 or email him at cvaughan@mailr.sen.state.oh.us.
