San Fran while is extremely expensive to live in, currently also has the highest average income in the nation as well.

Major stem businesses / IT corporations, spawn in the Pacific and trickle down operations further East. This movement is also a BIG reason as to why DFW is doing so well economically right now as their location in central time and proximity to their parent corporations while capabilities of redistributing tasks further east makes it an ideal hub in that aspect.

While, Tech has been big in the Pacific, its more recent. T&T, Westinghouse, Bell labs, GE, IBM all began on the east coast. Dell, Texas Instruments, Compaq Computers are Texas companies. A lot of engineering advancements came via NASA which was more on the Eastern seaboard and Houston. AOL and Netscape founders were midwestern guys. Mark Cuban is from Pittsburgh. Facebook originated as an idea from some guys in Boston.

Migration to Atlanta has significantly slowed. The city welcomed fewer domestic migrants than much smaller Charlotte and Austin did last year, and itís drawing far fewer immigrants than Dallas, Houston, and even Philadelphia".

This ^^^^ ought to have the state leaders not just Atlanta worried. NC and Tennessee benefit from not having growth concentration in one part of the state as much as Georgia does. Amazon putting a mini-hub in Nashville made a lot of people sit up. And NC has some positive with BB&T taking Suntrust and Charlotte being an American Airlines Hub. Plus NC's road infrastructure is second largest in the U.S. behind Texas, i.e. mobility.
Iíll be worried when two things start happening: we lose population and GMP growth. Let Nashville grow. Let Charlotte grow. Let Raleigh, Austin, Orlando, and Tampa grow. Let the growth GAWDS rain the HOLY GROWTH on the Southeastern United States. And let the job GAWDS not withhold all of those jobs from us. Even the ones that donít land in our own backyard.

But by golly, ATL has a 1000 new box stuffing jobs. Big whoop old timer.
60-70% of the population doesn't have a college degree. They need better jobs than McDonald's (who is automating much of it anyways).

"Box stuffing jobs" are being automated too.

You said "I'm pretty sure most of the GDP in this country resides in the Pacific region, with San Francisco currently having the highest." You didn't say "California". You said "San Francisco". I read that as "San Francisco has the highest in the country".

I said 'Pacific Region' which encompasses everything from Los Angeles to Seattle. San Francisco having the highest of them.
