Provo is best-performing economy among big U.S. cities

The Provo area was ranked as best-performing economy among large U.S. metro areas in 2017, according to the Milken Institute. The new ranking comes as Florida and other areas in the South rise in favorability, while California dwindles. “You saw that some of the coastal metro areas driven by technology are beginning to slow slightly and you’re seeing more growth in Raleigh and Dallas, which have competitive business climates and very highly educated work forces,” says Minoli Ratnatunga, Milken’s director of regional economics research.
