Recent Study Shows Strong Georgia Economy

Giorgio Trovato

A recent study shows Georgia is in the top 15 when it comes to states with strong economies. Analysts with the personal finance website WalletHub complied the list. They considered 28 factors under three key categories: economic activity, economic health, and innovation potential.

Analyst Cassandra Happe says a strong state economy doesn’t guarantee success for the state’s residents, but it makes financial success more attainable. She discussed the list with WUGA.
