Pete the Banker: If Possible Oregon 48th Out of 50 State Economies

…And you thought it wasn’t possible to get worse. 
Oregon falls four places from the 23rd in 2010 to the 27th in 2011in a CNBC poll. (I guess better than falling from 23rd to 32nd in State Per Capita Personal Income over the preceding decade).  Washington not to be outdone by her southerly neighbor fell five places from 15th to 20th.

 
I definitely like the increase Oregon’s “Business Friendliness” ranking which increased from 28th to 23rd??? Washington is friendlier too, just ask Boeing??? 
 
The Oregon economy isn’t feeling much love (48th!!)  Washington’s economy ranking (32nd) fell only 14 places barely staying in the top two thirds of states, not falling 15 places like Oregon which is third from last. The good news; well Oregon is still ranked above S Carolina and Harry Reid’s Nevada???

Congratulations, Democrats, your worker’s paradise utopia is getting even closer!
