    Wondering what states to move to after graduation? Check this out.

    If you just graduated from college or even high school, and you're looking for a job you should check this article out:

    http://money.msn.com/investing/10-fa...tate-economies

    The article lists the fastest growing state economies in the United States and the state's unemployment rate.

    Here is an excerpt from the article:

    No. 7: Utah

    GDP growth: 3.4%
    Real 2012 GDP: $111.8 billion (18th smallest)
    1-year population change: 1.45% (4th highest)
    1-year employment growth: 1.76% (11th highest)

    Utah's economic output increased by 3.4%, boosted by some of the nation's largest gains in durable goods manufacturing, retail trade and the finance and insurance sector. As the state's economy has grown, so have job opportunities. In 2012, total employment was up 1.8% from just the year before, and the state's unemployment rate was just 5.7%, among the lowest in the nation.

    Jobs in financial services, after falling for years due to the financial crisis, have recovered steadily since early 2010 and were up 3% over the 12 months ending in December 2012. In a recent report, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce ranked Utah among the nation's most successful states at growing high-tech businesses and developing a highly skilled workforce.

    I could see myself living in number 1 and number two but for a different reason. They both have no state income taxation and are both very lax on certain laws and regulations. They also both have lower corporate taxation which is conducive to a growing business environment. I would probably pick North Dakota though because there's a chance I could own large swaths of land on the cheap and I could then start growing organic non-GMO based foods.

    I will miss the pizza. Especially the kind we have in my area (Quad Cities style pizza) but its no reason to stick around.

    I'm not looking to move.

    I already live in the #2 state on that list, and in the #13 city in the nation on this list.

    Can't do much better than that.


    Except for also making the top 10 of this list...
