Houston, Dallas, Miami and Nashville – these four cities, according to Insider’s forecast based on various analyzes and reports, will be “the future of America.” Their attractiveness is primarily related to the growing professional opportunities they offer.
The forecast presented by Insider in the text published on November 15 is based on an analysis of Internet users’ search data conducted by Redfin. It shows that there are four large cities from which Americans most often consider moving: San Francisco, New York, Los Angeles and Washington. In turn, the city with the most inhabitants USA would like to move is, according to the search results, Miami. Houston, Dallas and Nashville also took the lead.
– There used to be two coastal energy zones where you could live your best life without ever actually ending up in the “red” (traditionally Republican – ed.) states. Now we have an America that is definitely more multipolar than bipolar. This is reflected in taxes, quality of life, cost of living, ability to build and striking differences in the quality of government, said Stanford University historian Niall Ferguson, quoted by Insider.
In its article, the portal points out the advantages of each of the four cities on the rise.
USA. Cities of the future
It is the fourth largest city in the United States. It is the headquarters of 26 of the 500 largest companies in the world (based on the Fortune 500 ranking – ed.), and among American cities it is second only to New York and Chicago in this respect. Insider emphasizes that as many as 40 percent Houston’s economy is tied to oil and gas. However, an analysis by the consulting company McKinsey shows that thanks to the existing infrastructure and qualified workforce, the capital of Texas could be enriched by a quarter of a billion dollars in renewable energy investments by 2040. Houston, as home NASAis also one of the main centers of the space industry.
Insider emphasizes that between 2021 and 2022, Dallas recorded the largest increase in the number of inhabitants of all US cities – by over 170,000. Companies are also moving there. As we read, since 2010, 175 large companies have moved their headquarters to North Texas, including Dallas. The investment bank Goldman Sachs, one of the industry leaders, plans to create 5,000 in this metropolis. new job positions. Insider points out that Dallas offers companies a growing group of people of “prime working age”, i.e. aged 23 to 38. Many of them have technical education.
The population of Florida’s leading metropolis grew by 1.7% between 2021 and 2022, which was the fourth fastest growth among the 50 largest American cities. The insider notes that he is moving there after 29 years in Seattle, Jeff Bezos. He’s not the only one. Between 2012 and 2022, the number of millionaires living in Miami increased by 75%. There are over 1,100 headquarters of international corporations in the city, which is due to its proximity to Latin America. “In the coming years, high levels of immigration to the city could continue to stimulate labor and economic growth,” Insider predicts.
Probably the most non-obvious of the cities on Insider’s list. The portal cites this year’s data from the HR company Checkr, which shows that Nashville is the leading American city in terms of professional opportunities and earning potential. “While Nashville is a well-known and popular tourist destination, its economy is driven by more than just the music and hospitality industries,” Insider emphasizes. The portal adds that giants such as Amazon and Oracle have moved into Tennessee’s largest city in recent years.
