...for fastest growth, the de facto Silicon Valley economic capital San Jose leads the way in the U.S., with projected growth of 3% per year between 2019 and 2035.

San Jose, in the report’s view, “offers a powerful high-tech, entrepreneurial ecosystem combining research universities, investment capital and a cultural affinity for risk.”

City Average GDP growth between 2019 and 2035
San Jose, Calif. 3%
Portland, Ore. 2.6%
Austin, Texas 2.6%
Seattle 2.4%
Charlotte, N.C. 2.4%
Nashville, Tenn. 2.4%
San Francisco 2.4%
Orlando, Fla. 2.3%
Dallas 2.3%
Salt Lake City 2.3%

The bay area economy/job picture continues to be favorable. Get ready for continued housing shortage and the relentless stress on the aging infrastructures.

The problems are (as noted) prohibitive housing costs and tough commutes. Unless California somehow completes the high speed rail line, it will get worse. That is a real drag on growth.
