What U.S. city do you think is the most economically stable? I'm referring to the amount of debt the city owes, the job market/growth, population growth.

I would actually say the Washington DC area since the federal government and most contractors who rely on it do not tend to be affected by recessions compared with the private sector.

Although highly unlikely nowadays because of the huge demand for energy, Houston used to rival Detroit back in the day when the first oil bubble collapsed back in the 80's.

I would agree with Washington DC and would also add Boston. Neither city was very affected by the economic crash in 2007. I would also add that population growth isn't a sign of economic health as evidenced by cities like Orlando which feature a heavily distressed housing market, low wages and little professional sector job opportunity.

Seattle. Very low unemployment, booming tech industry, and one of the start up capitals of anerica in recent years.
