BosWash is doing the best for jobs with college grads. There is nothing comparing to the jobs offered in DC, Philly, NYC and Boston, except for Chicago.

BosWash has higher taxes, but everyone makes higher salaries along higher services and amenities.

BosWash gets slight increases in population, which is healthy. BosWash doesn't get 1M people in their metro area within a 9 year period, this amount of growth is unhealthy.

The Northeast has always been steady and will remain that way.

It really depends on what you do now isn't it? What is a good area for some occupations might not be for other jobs.

Parts of the South, particularly Texas, do.
