If I put a graph of employment in Houston next to a graph of employment in SF, what would that say about employment in either of the two cities? Absolutely nothing.
Bump.

What my point is that San Francisco's nice weather is not going to save it look at LA after Rodney King.

According to your own graph, LA is the middle of the 3 series, beating Detroit but behind Chicago.

So once again, what was your point?

You're trying to salvage your own argument by focusing in on one decade (which ended 17 years ago I might add). Wonder what your next trick will be?

Los Angeles was in a employment recession for the entire nineties, so good weather is not going to save SF.

I know it is old data but it shows how you can have a 1970s Detroit even if you have perfect weather.

That is a graph showing employment in Houston compared to employment in LA. LA is bigger and they both have similar patterns so it must mean Houston is going to be the next LA!
