According to a recent BizJournals story on MSN.com, Salt Lake City "would appear to be well situated to confront the recessionary challenges ahead."
The report looks at areas of the country that have undergone rapid growth in the past 10-20 years and are continuing to expand. It asserted population growth as a positive factor in a strong local economy in bad times, and Salt Lake appears to be doing well in that department as well.
The outlook for areas that are undergoing expansion is good because as population grows, infrastructure is needed to support the additional people, and the entire local economy benefits from that growth. Likewise, when the population of an area shrinks rapidly, the local economy usually suffers.
