A new report by Cushman & Wakefield could be tough to swallow for anyone hoping to see metro Atlanta's economy crash and burn in the near future. Pointing to U.S Bureau of Labor Statistics data and other metrics, the report not only puts Hotlanta at numero uno in the percentage of year-over-year job growth (as of May) but also projects the city to lead the country in relative job growth between 2015 and 2018. While encouraging, the report serves as a reminder of how extremely terrible Atlanta's economic health was not all that long ago. [Atlanta office data image, intel: C&W]
