What makes you think they will recover any time soon? The state continues to be an economic and forclosure disaster plagued by low wages and lack of jobs.

Recover? From what? It's still growing, people are still moving there, that's all they need. That's how it's been done down there since day 1. Population 18million and counting, probably gonna surpass NY and become number 3.

Sorry, but it's said everywhere, Florida won't recover easily, but in 2012 the strong growth will be back.Florida is one of the best state about the business climate, the weather is great, and the house crisis effects are over (the bottom point has been reached).
And low wage jobs you say ? Ridiculous, many jobs are well-paid in Florida, particularly in the international trade, but if you don't know the economy of Florida you can't know that.

And yeah Polo, Florida will be the third largest state soon, ahead New York

NJPhilliesPhan, I cant speak for Orlando & Tampa or central Florida at all but Jacksonville & Miami have the potential to recover.

Jacksonville is already starting to recover and economically its the healthiest Metropolitan Area in Florida right now (which doesn't say much). It's also the fastest to get incentives ready to attract more business and things of that nature.

Miami, I don't think Miami-Fort Lauderdale will be pinned for long. I cant imagine how a Metropolitan Area of over 5.5 Million people can deplete so much. So I'm going with my inner feeling on Miami-Fort Lauderdale. I don't know too much about it. Nor do I know about Orlando & Tampa to comment.

"In Florida, occupations with the largest expected job growth are similar. According to a state forecast, from 17 occupations projected to gain the most numbers of new jobs include retail salesperson, waiter and waitress, janitor and cleaner, customer service representative, and general office clerk."

DANNY I agree that Miami being the only real city in Florida has the best chance of recovery. But low wage jobs and unemployment will severly delay any recovery.

He is implying Florida really doesn't have an ecnonomy outside of tourism. That's not to far from the truth. In essence Florida recovery will greatly be depended on the U.S. recovery.
