Forbes has called the economic recovery of the US a “meager” one. As a country, the upswing has been a crawl, but an analysis has said there are cities that have enjoyed a speedier recovery. No. 4 on that list: Columbus. Listed under “Tech Capitals” the capital of the Buckeye state has seen a 8.2% growth in rise in per capita GDP. In addition, poverty has been on the decline in the city as opposed to the rising numbers in many other areas. It actually only declined in seven of the 52 biggest metropolitan areas.
