Valley Not the Place for America’s Young and Wealthy?

More than a few denizens of Silicon Valley think they reside in the center of American wealth creation, if not the center of the universe.

According a study from market-researcher Nielsen Claritas, though, America’s young and wealthy are voting with their well-heeled feet and congregating in the environs of Washington, D.C.

First the data-center investments went east, and now the young and wealthy appear to be making the same pilgrimage.

San Francisco held the top spot in Nielsen’s young-and-wealthy rankings back in 2000, but it has slipped to third spot, falling along with dot-com fortunes. No other county in the Bay Area cracked the top ten.
