Boston had the strongest wage growth of these cities through the tech bust and jobless recovery. Over the next five years, it will have the highest per capita income, next to San Francisco.

    The link is to a story published in 2006 by CNN. While the fundamentals are essentially the same, the story itself should reflect the 2007-8 market.
