Some are obvious like New York City and surounding areas, but others like Sioux Falls, SD or Mountain Brook, AL are not. It points out how the problems of those shaky industries affect so many communities throughout the country.
Moody’s Economy.com projects that New York City and its suburbs will lose 65,000 finance jobs by the middle of 2010. But the turmoil will also be felt in areas that house back office and IT functions for these struggling businesses as well as accountants, lawyers, security, etc.
