Houston is booming and so is OKC, Dallas, and Austin. They have no recession so I'll say them.

Both Hartford and Boston are faring quite well too. NYC was beginning to have trouble but it seems like things are stabilizing now. In all I think the Northeast is doing well compared to the South and West. TX and OK are doing well too.

Four words though: It's not over yet.

That is very true, Texas has done great (especially Houston and Dallas) compared to other states during these economic times and I think they will continue to be ahead of the pack.

Since Texas is not technically in a recession it doesn't have one to recover from. My guess will be the South Atlantic. There are plenty of developments in Atlanta still in progress, and the recession is not going to slow them down, but new proposed ideas that haven't broken ground yet may have been put on hold. The Delta/Northwest merger should help Atlanta's economy. Also North Carolina and Virginia are growing areas. Not sure about Florida, it may take awhile for them to recover, but it is a tourism based economy so maybe the lower gas prices will help.

I think the Northeast and N England has a number of areas that are experiencing growth. Boston, Washington and Hartford have gained jobs over the last several months.

One of these three, each of which is well-positioned for a decent recovery, though each of which has an issue to deal with as well:

South Atlantic, though Florida may drag the rest of the region downward.

West South Central - Texas is doing very well, but Louisiana is also in the region, which likewise might slow things down.

West North Central - Several of the cities have some of the strongest local economies in the US now. The rural/small town areas are in decline however.

Have to consider the rural/small town areas have been in decline for nearly 100 years in some places. That is often due to the fact that it takes a lot less people to farm the same amount of land. Many places have population numbers that are lower now than in 1900.

Yeah, West South Central.
Texas has the strongest recovery in the country, and Oklahoma resisted very well.

North Dakota and South Dakota are the best, because they never have been hit by the crisis
