    The list lost credibility with Boise, ID at #6.

    #1, #3 whatever, I'm proud that the midwest is turning up so well. I'm partial to Des Moines AND Omaha, so I love to see these promos.


    Nothing to see here mods. Keep moving.

    Re: Des Moines, best city for business

    Yeah, good to hear. And while the economy has sucked for the last 12-18 months, I started my business during that time - and it's doing well (significant jump from '08 to '09). Having said that, it's easier for a new business to see sizable jumps from one year to the next in those early phases. But, it's encouraging.

    In theory you'd think I or any new business could do better in a market like Chicago or something, but I think with the competitive nature - it would be about the same or perhaps worse. Cost of living certainly plays into this as well.
