“Why Buffalo is bouncing back faster than Atlanta” – WP

Thanks to the Buffalo Expat Network for passing along this link to a Washington Post blog, which points to this Brookings Report that recently mapped out Gross Metropolitan Product Change in the Largest 100 metropolitan areas. Buffalo was listed as number two in strongest metros – Suzy Khimm @ Washington Post picked it up and ran with commentary titled “Why Buffalo is bouncing back faster than Atlanta.”

As posted by Howard Wial and Richard Shearer – Metropolitan Policy Program @ Brookings:

The map shows how the 100 largest metropolitan areas rank on a combination of four economic indicators: percent job change from the peak quarter to the second quarter of 2011, change in the unemployment rate from June 2008 to June 2011, percent change in economic output (gross metropolitan product) from the peak quarter to the second quarter of 2011, and percent change in an index of house prices from the peak quarter to the second quarter of 2011.
