Default Why is the Northeast so much better off than the South, Midwest and West?

By Northeast/Mid Atlantic I mean from Washington DC up to Maine.

The Northeast isn't the fastest growing but it appears by and far healthier/affluent/educated/safe than everyplace else. The south is especially troubling. Lots of migration there, but still by far the poorest, least educated, fattest and most dangerous.

I think it's because the northeast has the most overall development, stable foundations and cultural capital to fall back on in times of crisis among all these regions.

It's like somebody turned on the light switch.

I think is because the South is very country and they lack sense of a culture.

Exaggeration, but being country is culture.

Is this why the Northeast and Upper Midwest are bleeding population? Namely their most educated people and middle to upper middle families? Hmmmm, strokes chin. Atlanta is actually one of the most educated and wealthiest cities in the country. Raleigh is pretty much *the* most educated city in the country. Atl, Dallas, Houston, Austin, SA, Nashville, Charlotte, RDU, Jacksonville, Orlando, Tampa, and Greenville, SC are exploding in population and immigration into the SE is also exploding. The better climate certainly helps.

Parts of PA and NY and western Mass are just as poor and ugly as MS, AL, and LA. The South is also fatter because of cultural food differences (which clearly does not signify a lack of culture there).

First post ever by this individual on this site?

Is this person by and far healthier/affluent/educated/safe than everyone else?

Well, yeah. Obviously.
