I moved from NYC to Las Vegas and it's like night and day. The analysis that was posted is on balance correct but draws poor conclusions in some cases.
For example, it's easy to find a job in LV. The idea that new residents are outpacing jobs was a sloppy conclusion based on very limited thinking.
For example, it didn't factor in retirees, who flock to relocate to LV because of the nice weather and low cost of living. They are not in the work force.
Also, if a small family of 4 moves into town, 2 of which are job-force age, often only one of the 4 will work (one homemaker, 2 children, and breadwinner). The analysis above doesn't even pretend to factor that into the equasion. Sloppy.
As for MJ laws, that's no big deal to me - I agree it should be contraband. Taxes are low in NV, and quality of life is good.
I made a good move here. I do not regret it at all. ;-)

(I will not be pushed, filed, stamped, indexed, briefed, debriefed or numbered. My life is my own.)
In one year we'll be high-tailing it out of NY. Pennsylvania has been our top pick but I'm willing to take a closer look at Delaware.
