Virginia is for Business

On July 11th Forbes announced that Virginia was the best state for business in the US for the second year in a row. The fifty states were ranked based on business costs, labor, regulatory environment, economic climate, growth prospects, and quality of life. Here’s the top ten:

  1. Virginia
  2. Utah
  3. North Carolina
  4. Texas
  5. Washington
  6. Idaho
  7. Florida
  8. Colorado
  9. North Dakota
  10. Minnesota

Even though the “Old Dominion” was number one for the second year in a row, apparently the biggest story was the state of Washington was coming in at number five. Washington is home to Boeing, Starbucks, Amazon.com, and Microsoft.
