The jobs section in the newspaper is very thin.
I don't know about a "strong economy."

Its easier for small isolated metro areas like Little Rock to avoid the brunt of the recession because for one, LR is a very small market and there wasn't a lot of economic power to be lost, and second, most of LR's economy is based on stuff like government jobs that always do well during a recession.

The Little Rock-North Little Rock Metro has the second most diverse economy in the nation so that is not true, but you're right about the LR Metro not having very much economic power to lose since we did not benefit as much from the boom years.
