So says Forbes today, which is tremendous news as, once more on this free-fall Friday, the Dow Jones Industrials threatens to drop past the 8,000-point mark. Several factors went into the ranking -- job growth projections, inflation, median house price, median household income, cost of living and gas prices among them.
