Raleigh is No. 1, Charlotte 22, Asheville 24 and Durham 31 on the 2011 Forbes list of best cities to do business. It just proves what the Republicans have been saying, that years of one-party government by the Democrats have led the state's economy to ... oh, never mind.
Raleigh returns to its accustomed No. 1 rank after a year in third place. We are the only East Coast city in the top 10. Our lofty status is due to the low cost of doing business here combined our highly educated labor force, according to Forbes. Which must be why the GOP-led General Assembly has chosen to reduce taxes and slash education spending.
What, the logic of that escapes you?
