Memphis ranked #7 on "Hottest Cities" list by Exapansion Management

Recommended Posts

Expansion Management Magazine has released their yearly ranking of the "Top 50" hottest cities for business expansion, and Memphis came in #7!!! Very good news for the city and the state. Tennessee ended up with 4 cities in the Top 50, 3 of them in the top 10! Nashville #1, Memphis #7, Knoxville #9, and Jackson #42. :yahoo:

Tennessee is definately showing that it and its cities are business friendly and competative.

Maybe next year we can get another city or two on the list!

Unfortunately, I don't think these lists mean much.

Two or three years ago, Memphis was ranked as high as no. 3, but the unemployment rate has remained stuck at around 5-6% in most of this decade. Also, the CA had an article recently lamenting the fact that economic growth in Memphis is about 1.5%/yr. whereas the national economy has been growing around 3%/yr.
