If someone is willing to move anywhere in America (or North America for that matter), what city would be best to make the most money.

Cost of living should also be considered. $40,000 a year in Austin will probably leave someone with more money in the bank than $60,000 a year in New York City.

For fun let's have several categories:

Where to bank the most money for High School Degree holders?
...for AA holders?
...Bachelors?
...Masters?
...and Doctorates?

Save money you said?

2007 Nest Egg Index-Cities with the most savings
In the third annual Nest Egg Index, we ranked the 500 top-performing communities based on their residents' personal savings and investing behavior. By measuring a dozen statistical factors - including participation in retirement savings plans, personal debt levels and home ownership - the Nest Egg Index shows the geographic regions where people are succeeding and facing difficulty with their nest eggs. In this year's results, communities that ranked highly in the Nest Egg Index continue to benefit from strong local housing markets and show a high propensity toward saving and investing in retirement vehicles such as 401(k) or pension plans. And while these communities had higher costs of living than the national average, nineteen out of the top 20 also had lower debt levels.

Anyway, in the Bay Area, one quick way to bank A LOT of money without much hassle is to be a nanny in Silicon Valley. My cousins from Tonga and New Zealand make about $600 a day right off the airplane, working as live-in nannies for rich techies. Of course you'd spend all your time there five days a week(weekends too if you like), but its fast money and its not messy.
