It must be the date for which the type of article started.

And yet, people can still make a good living here because of a low cost of living. What part of that do you not get?

Have you looked at your state unemployment rate and forclosure rate lately?

Hey at least they can't ship my low wage retail, food service, face to face customer service job overseas and give it to an extremely educated and willing Indian workforce. At least you cannot staff a Winn-Dixie or Publix with low wage workers from Asia for pennies a day. Continue to drink the capitalism/profit motive koolaid America and before you know it your safe accounting or number crunching-paper pushing job will be outsourced to some office in India with a T-1 connection.They'll work weekends, holidays, overtime, be more productive, complain less, and most importantly cost less. How's that for increasing the bottom line!

PS. I'm all about the free markets helping all of these states grow their job markets once again, but if we think unbridled capitalism where corporations are only accountable to the bottom line is the way to go, then we should all just start shopping at Wal-Mart and let our government continue to subsidize the world's most profitable company into monopoly.

Yes. Have I ever said the economy isn't bad in FL right now? But I understand that the economy isn't permanent. It changes and it can and apparently is changing for the better in Florida. Moderator cut: see comment

Florida? I live in Florida. Cost of living is atronomical and we are at around 15% unemployment right now. I fail to see how we will be "leading the pack" soon. We may get a burst as tourist season is starting, but those are low-wage seasonal jobs held by the hospitality industry.

Why does FL bother you so much?
If you're really happy living in NJ, why do you feel the need to consistently belittle FL?

No, 12% !
And yeah Florida could recover in 2011 and mostly 2012.
This is one of the most competitive state fiscally and one of the most pro-business, investments will resume, no doubts.Bad situations can't last forever you know...
