Foco #9 – Best Performing Cities

Fort Collin’s ranked in the top 10 for Milken Institute’s Best-Performing Cities U.S. index for 2018. Cities were chosen based of key findings taken directly from the Milken Institute’s website below:

  • High-tech industries continue to fuel growth in many of the best-performing cities, creating opportunities for highly-skilled workers.
  • Low unemployment rates and a shortage of skilled labor are spurring more competition for knowledge-workers, putting upward pressure on wages in the tech sector and widening the income gap.
  • Top metro areas are enjoying impressive job and wage growth, but many are also seeing housing prices rise sharply.
  • The national economy provides a strong base for regional growth with soaring stock markets, low inflation, and high employment supporting consumer confidence.
