The Best And Worst Thing About Living In North Dakota
When it comes to living in North Dakota, those of us who have been here for most or all of our lives, we can make a list as long as your leg with the best reasons to live in the Peace Garden State.
24/7 Wall St. published a list of the best and worst things about living in every state. To be real, regardless of where you live, there are good qualities and other factors regarding a state you would rather forget or not brag about in public.
When I researched the topic on 24/7 Wall St., I found it ironic the best thing about living in the state was also the worst about living in North Dakota.
The oil boom has been a double edge sword for North Dakota. When the boom hit the state starting in 2011, the GDP (Gross Domestic Product) rose by 25%. Then when the bottom fell out of the boom, the GDP the fell by 5% and the economy declined which was felt across the prairies.
The GDP is the total value of goods produced and services provided in the state in a 12 month period.
