An Atlanta Business Chronicle columnist points to hard data — and "not a puff piece written by a member of Gen-Y" — that show how metro Atlanta, the country's 1990s and early-aughts King of Population Growth, is lagging behind Sunbelt competitors. Alarmingly, not one single metro Atlanta city or county made the U.S. Census Bureau's recently released analysis of population growth in 2013 and 2014. Before we cheer the notion of less traffic and fewer crowds at the mall, attorney Mark Elliot cautions that sheer growth is the lifeblood of Atlanta business, especially real estate.
