Austin is one of U.S. regions with the most economic momentum, according to a Dec. 26 article on Forbes.com.
Forbes collaborated with the Praxis Strategy Group to compare data from the nation's 52 largest metropolitan statistical areas. The results tapped Austin as the top-ranked metro area for economic potential in 2014. According to the article, Austin has "enjoyed double-digit growth in GDP, jobs, population and birthrate since 2007. The Texas capital has a very strong hipster reputation, attracting many of the same people who might otherwise end up in Silicon Valley or San Francisco, but it also boasts the low taxes, light regulation and reasonable housing prices that keep migrants there well past their 30s."
