Another Meaningless Ranking from Forbes: We're Miserable
Forbes only exists anymore to create inane city rankings that have no practical use. Their latest in "America's 10 Most Miserable" cities, which ranks cities based on "commute times, corruption, pro sports teams, Superfund sites, taxes
(both income and sales), unemployment, violent crime and weather." Miami is number nine:
"Miami has been crushed by the housing collapse. Moody's Economy.com
estimates that 26% of mortgages in Miami are delinquent or are likely
to be written off as bad debt that can not be collected. Violent crime
and corruption are also off the charts."
Riptide is sick of making posts trying to figure out what these Forbes rankings mean, because we are pretty sure most of them don't mean anything. We have bad crime, corruption, and a housing collapse. Tell us something we don't know.
