Top 10 Cities for Economic Upheaval
Forbes released their first-ever Top 10 list of "America's Fastest Changing-Cities" which shows the cities experiencing the most economic upheaval. The list was culled from data from www.ZoomProspector.com, BLS, IRS, National Association of Realtors, and the Census Dept. Pat O'Brien, executive director of the Milwaukee 7 is quoted about how his EDO is responding to the changing economy saying, "We focus on driver industries. Those industries that sell goods and services outside of the region, thereby creating new capital investment into the region." The article also contains a slideshow with deeper data on each of the ten cities listed.
