South Dakota's Healthy Economy


Despite what the doom-and-gloomers who can never be pleased if someone makes more money than they do, South Dakota's economy is doing alright, according to KOTA and a report from the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis.

We're doing better than most states, and are in the second highest quintile:

Nationally, South Dakota had the 16th highest growth rate. In the seven state Plains Region (IA, KS, MN, MO, NE, ND and SD) South Dakota posted the highest growth rate.

Thank God for a prosperous nation and a prosperous state!

God has nothing to do with who profits or who does not. God cares not about such things - only fake chrisians do.
