When the recession is good and done will the sunbelt boom continue or
will another region of our country boom? Which other region is most likely to boom? upper midwest maybe?

The sunbelt boom will continue, when you look at numbers (employment, economic growth, pop growth) you see that
And I expect a boom in Dakotas

I would imagine people will be more cautious in general, and we won't see any 'boom' like we've had during the past decade for a while. But yes, from the looks of things people are still steadily moving south.

Why would the upper midwest boom?

I'm not being snarky, just curious to know which indicators lead you to think that large numbers of people will be moving into that region.

Yes, they will continue to boom. They were the ones least affected by the recession, affected but the least affected indeed.

I expect the Midwest to pick up economically, I don't have any stats or proof for this, but I have a gut feeling this region will surprise everyone and take the lead yet again.

Yes, it will continue. The cities of the east and the midwest are becoming far more expensive, even in this recession. I encounter more and more people who seem to feel that if they are going to be taxed to death and suffer a high cost of living, then they might as well get some decent weather most of the year instead of only a couple months a year. The sun belt is not all its cracked up to be, but there is always room for improvement.

places in the upper midwest like minneapolisa nice city seems like it could be a place where lots of people would flock to.

The sunbelt was affected the most, but its only right since they played a major role in causing it.

North Dakota and South Dakota have very very good jobs opportunities and low cost of living

Not just Minneapolis, but there's also Columbus, Indianapolis, and Chicago. Chicago is still a very prominent city for our country's economy. It's to diverse to share the same fate as Detroit.
I can see Los Angeles collapsing before I see Chicago collapsing.

It's wrong, totally wrong.Texas and Virginia didn't cause the housing bubble (thanks cali, arizona, florida and nevada) and they've been extremly resilient during this crisis
