Maybe you have not lived anywhere else and have nothing to compare it to but Charlotte is NOT a diverse economy even if you want to pretend it is.
You know those tall building in downtown, ur I mean "uptown"?

Well, what percentage of those over ten stories have bank names on them or relating to banking?

I would say over 50% Maybe up to 80%
Whats the name of the NFL stadium there? Does it start with Bank Of... .. come on..you know it..
What is Charlotte's 2nd largest job base outside of banking? City/state government?
Actually, I've lived in Atlanta and Dallas, I'm originally from this area, and have lived here the past 12 years straight. And I do know Charlotte well. It amazes me how some long time folks here like you do "not" know the city. One of the biggest problems with your argument is that you're only talking about "Uptown/Downtown" Charlotte; as if everybody in the city works there??? At any rate, here are some links so you can brush up on where the majority of people in this city work...

Link 1: Charlotte Chamber - Largest Employers
