The conservative utopia of Waukesha still did not make it, and Rep. Paul Ryan’s beloved district stomping ground, Janesville, is the worst state city on the list. But who cares, we should turn the country’s economy over to him? Why not, he’s a leader with courage.
WSJ: Madison's economy is the seventh strongest among metropolitan areas in the U.S., according to Policom Corp.'s 2012 rankings.
That's the best showing in three years. In 2011, the Madison area was 12th; in 2010, it was ninth; and in 2009, it was in sixth place.
Two other Wisconsin cities were among Policom's top 100: Green Bay was No. 67 and Milwaukee, No. 70. Janesville was the lowest rated of Wisconsin's metro areas, at No. 344 of the 366 cities in the study.
