"Investment, when practiced simply and not based on the volatility or good fortune of variables over which one has no control and even less knowledge, has higher security and higher probability of continued growth"
Florida, and in particular the Tampa Bay Area, are involved in one of the most spectacular periods of growth in the Nation. The growth of inverstment capital is enjoying very favorable rates.
Indicators, such as employment, home building, job creation, trade, retail, business startups, education and population growth have managed to well weather the recent economic downturn. With good news on the production indexes of the United States and a "no new taxes" attitude from leaders in Florida's government, there is nothing but blue skies of optimism in the Bay Area's inverstment circles.
The prospect for long term growth is clearly the positive manifestation of confidence and health of Florida's consumer, even through the recession.
