I don't feel much richer, but someone in South Dakota must be making money. The latest report from the Bureau of Economic Analysis shows that South Dakota had the fourth-highest rate of growth in personal income during the second quarter of 2010. Personal income growth across all states rose 1.0%; South Dakota's personal income grew 1.4% over Q1, thanks largely to increases in the farm sector. The three states beating us: third-place Texas, second-place Montana (nice work, Larry!), and (trumpets!) first-place North Dakota. Our income-taxing socialist neighbors to the north posted 2.0% personal income growth.
No report from the Noem camp on how this data squares with a "jobless stimulus."
