Boise Idaho ranked 2nd best by Forbes Magazine!

 Stop all the presses!  There isn't supposed to be any strong economies out there according to all the negative press.  Foreclosures here, short sales there, jobless claims everywhere.  "The Sky is Falling"!   One cannot turn on the radio or T.V. or read anything published without being reminded about how bad things are. 

Forbes Magazine has just named Boise Idaho "The 2nd Best Place For Busines And Careers" in their rankings just realeased. Cities were ranked according to economic growth, cost of living, jobless claims, tax rates, etc.

Last September (2007) USA Today wrote a wonderful article titled "No End In Site For Idaho's Growth" where it raved about Idaho's computer technology, agriculture, and other attractions such as white water rafting, fishing, hiking, etc. which draws thousands of new residents and tourists each year.

Companies in the U.S. are facing a myriad of challenges, from the credit crunch to soaring commodity prices to corporate tax rates. In spite of all the challenges facing the country, there are still areas like Idaho that are  seeing strong job growth and solid economies.

I feel you.  The Bay Area media is constantly talking about how terrible things are in the housing market without talking about the hot spots....like the neighborhoods where I work in Berkeley and Oakland!  Congrats on some positive attention!

Hello George,

I am so excited to be living here in Idaho.  I keep rubbing my eyes wondering why the statistics for Garden Valley are up, while the media fills my brain with doom and gloom.   I won't wonder any more.
