CNBC Study Ranks Minnesota #1 For Business

By
Industry Observer

CNBC has chosen Minnesota as its top state for business in their 2015 study.

If you don't call this state your home, or if you're not familiar with what sets it apart from most others, check the CNBC report in the link above. 

Minnesota has consistently been in the top ten of this fairly unbiased annual study. Education, transportation, quality of life, and diversification of businesses / industries all contribute to our consistent performance.

I think CNBC got the role of the governor wrong. The state has under 2% of the nation's population and has always had a disproportionate number of major corporations, currently eighteen Fortune 500 companies and some major private companies as well. Dayton just happened to be ceremonially sitting in the governors chair during the upside of the business cycle.

One item of personal pride to residents of this state may be that we beat out the state on the other end of Interstate 35, Texas.  Until now, the only win we had was our larger turkey production.
