SAN JOSE (KCBS) – A just completed national study ranks Silicon Valley first when it comes to economic growth.
The report from the Manhattan Institute for Policy Research shows earnings growth in the manufacturing sector in Silicon Valley is up almost 30 percent.
“Silicon Valley’s strength, which they have to keep building on, is that they attract so many people with advanced skills, advanced education, engineering skills at the PhD and doctoral level,” said report co-author Tom Gray. “They are very good at that. But if they start losing that, then they might have trouble.”
