Thanks to Jerry Kalish (National Benefit Services & Retirement Plan Blog) for sending us a link to this map of the anticipated staggered recovery for the various U.S. metropolitan areas. Major Texas cities should return to pre-recession employment levels by the end of this year or next; most of California by 2012; New York and southern Michigan, not until 2015 or later. The map comes from yesterday's Chicago Sun Times. It's the perfect flip-side to the interactive map we described last week on Vanishng Employment.
