Did you see that article in the cnnmoney.com website that said Columbia South Carolina had one of the strongest preforming ecomonies in America? Here’s a little bit of what CNN Money had to say:
“These 21 large metro areas were singled out by Brookings for keeping their labor and housing markets stable and posting robust economic activity during the past few years.
In fact, all but five of the 21 leading cities have economic output levels that top records set just prior to the recession.
“Most of these cities have some general characteristics in common,” said Howard Weil, author of the report and a fellow at the Metropolitan Policy Program. “They didn’t experience huge housing bubbles followed by a crash, and their economies weren’t rooted in the auto industry.”
Weil added that a number of cities are also government centers…where job cuts have been limited and spending remains healthy.”
Hey, that sounds like pretty good news to me.
