Where’s the Best place in the Country to Live?

Where is the Best place in America to live? According to Money Magazine – the best place to live in America is …….

Eden Prairie, Minnesota!!

At least that’s the opinion of Money Magazine.

Healthy economy, family friendly, lots of walking and biking trails, low unemployment. At 5.1%, the unemplyment rate is 4% below the nations average.

Top rated schools and enviable safety statistics.

And it’s Minnesota for goodness sake – so no need to mention the beautiful surroundings and nearby lakes for year round recreation.

The list of positives goes on. Have a look at here for more on the story.

Makes me want to consider a move.

Will house prices fall even more?

I  don’t claim to be an expert in all things economy related, but I do get suspicious rather easily whenever I read an overly optimistic bit of economic news.
One factor which affects (or is it effects – I never can remember) the health of the economy to a huge degree, in a word is, Confidence. And I can’t help but feel like we, the Masses, are played and manipulated by those who report on the latest positive numbers or increasing trends. And then we are supposed to be, snap, all “confidant” again and start buying things on credit that we don’t need – just like the good ole days.
Well it’s taken me a lot of years of living, but I no longer believe the hype (I’m definitely a slooow learner). Just as several of my friends are telling me they think we are at the worst of this economic recession and we will be starting “up” the other side of this dip now, I have to say I don’t believe it for a second.

Here is an article in the Wall Street Journal (not one of my favorite sources of news, but even they are right sometimes) which points out a few of the reasons why I am not buying the hype.
