Welcome to the American Revolution II

Honolulu the 149th best place for business

Forbes.com ranks Honolulu the 149th best place for business and careers in its latest list.
Honolulu slipped from its previous spot at No. 103 in 2008.
The survey looked at the 200 largest U.S. metro areas, those with populations of more than 241,000. Forbes’ rankings were based on 11 factors: five-year job growth, five-year income growth, the cost of doing business (labor, tax, energy and office space costs), cost of living (housing, transportation and utility costs), crime rate, educational attainment, presence of four-year colleges, cultural and recreational opportunities, projected job growth, subprime mortgages and net migration.
Honolulu was noted for its educational attainment, subprime mortgages and income growth.
California had six of the seven lowest-rated spots on the list.
Forbes said West Chester, Pa.-based Economy.com, an economic research company owned by Moody’s, supplied data on five-year historical job and income growth, as well as migration trends.
