JAX Economy Making Gains and Ranks Impressively in World-Wide Rankings According to Bookings Institute
Alexa Epitropoulos of The JAX Business Journal reports that JAX’ economy isn’t out of the proverbial hole yet, but its making great strides, according to a new report by the Brookings Institution, the Washington-based think tank that ranks JAX #83 in its Brookings Global Metromonitor list that analyzes how the largest 300 cities world-wide have rebounded from the Great Recession in terms of GDP and employment in 2013-14. JAX’ ranking was behind only Orlando (#73) but well ahead of Miami and Tampa at #116 and #141 respectively, and also ahead of Atlanta (#100) and Charlotte (#110). Austin TX was the highest ranked in the U.S., at #38, followed by Houston, Raleigh, Fresno and Dallas. In fact, only Raleigh (#42) and Orlando outranked JAX in the entire Southeast; see their interactive map here.
