Love of place linked to growth - CharlotteObserver.com (http://www.charlotteobserver.com/2010/11/16/1841647/love-of-place-linked-to-growth.html - broken link)



I am not quite sure that I agree with this article. Yes, liking where you live is somewhat important, but, for those of us that are more practical, being able to live comfortably and have a steady, decent job is much more important than my surroundings.

So Charlotte is like a plant? If u love it, it will grow? I saw this on the news this morning and it made NO sense to me......obviously people (me being the exception) are usually gonna like a place they move to....that's why they move to said city...same can be said of pretty much any city....people like it it grows...people don't like it they move someplace else....this is economics 101......must be a slow news day....

You're right. Now think about your statement, the survey, and the conclusion and then see again if it makes sense. Optimism is contagious and spreads to others wanting to move to Charlotte
