This guy at the gym was trying to make a point about how michigan has higher taxes than some other states and they're doing well with a surplus and we aren't...as if that was the reason.

Really?

Also, I don't know if you know this but the rate of pirate attacks in the Caribbean directly correlate with the economy in Michigan. Matter of fact the the rate as gone up in attacks and so has unemployment and underemployment in MI. Hey stats don't lie. Check it for yourself.

Hard for me to decide. I have houses in both Michigan and Florida. Michigan house was a foreclosure bought at rock-bottom price and Florida house was on the market for 4 years until I gave up trying to sell it.

At least I am able to secure a job in Michigan in the Mortgage Industry. Been searching for a job in Flroida for 2 years without much luck.

My vote is for Tunisia.

Quoted from wikipedia "suffer from chronic massive unemployment"

I think Michigan will be the first to get back on there feet. It seems like the government is willing to send any type of business our way.

I have no idea bout any of this, I voted California, just for the population factor. Although if Hollywood cranks out a couple of crap movies they could be back on there feet in no time.

I mean we are in the shitta, but a few things help us here.
1. we still do have some manufacturing
2. Florida's economy is entirely based on tourism and over priced property (both doing great right now LOL
3. Cali has such an extremly high cost of living and way overpriced property.

But I still think Florida will be the last to recover

California is fawked! New York is fawked!

Michigan will rise from this faster than any other state. Both Cali and NY are facing some major deficits and both are up to their eyeballs in budget crunches. California has been writing IOU's. They have no money and are looking to raise taxes tremendously. Same with NY. Both have a very mobile tax base, and in one study it was projected that 1000 people leave NYC per day. They are facing taxes nearing 60%...which means they are 40% away from communism. Everyone knows when you lower taxes you create more revenue...the Michigan Film industry is a prim example. So Michigan will rise from this mess before Cali, NY, NJ, and Florida. Florida is just fawked anyway.

Michigan and California will come out last due to the high populations in California and Michigans dependance on the auto industry Theres tons of jobs around the country directly related to us selling cars or parts. Ive worked around the country and everyone is feeling it not in the same order though Ohio had some work for awhile but it fell off just the same as us and just got back from 2 mths in New York they only went into recession in 2008 but already thier rate is above 9.5 percent they'll catch up to us but we'll be the last by mid year 2010. I dont know why its like that though we went in they say in 2006 but these other states dont seem to b doing that great and will b out before we r. and the comment about the taxes isnt true either New York s is by far the highset i've seen around hell they even tax your food items and there gas is about 13 %
