And in a further continuation of my promise to find good lists that our fair city has landed on, I have found another one. And it really is a good one.
San Antonio ranks #2 on the list of United States cities that are bucking the recession. We are second only to ... Austin, our neighbor to the Northeast.
In fact, Texas continues to perform well despite poor or downright bleak economic conditions in other big metro areas of the US. In fact, the vast majority of the top 11 on this list are either in Texas or other Southern states. Out of the top 11 cities, only Omaha, NE was not a Southern city.
Dallas, El Paso and surprisingly McAllen are also on the list. The Brookings Institute compiled all the stats to come up with the rankings.
