New Yorkers packing it in
Now that the streets of New York -- and America -- are no longer paved with gold, it's time to find the next land of opportunity.
New Yorkers seeking greener pastures overseas
A number of New Yorkers are already packing it in, seeking fortune or adventure elsewhere. Bankers are looking for the new World Trade Centers of Shanghai and Sao Paolo. Writers are seeking fresh opportunities in Dubai and Mumbai. And entrepreneurs are finding second careers in Taipei and Moscow.
Whether it be for temporary assignments or permanent job changes, the shrinking American job market is making a move abroad more enticing. Even Mexico City's financial job prospects are rosier than New York City's, job placement experts said.
Wait! Come back! We need to justify overdevelopment!! We're supposed to have a million more people by 2030!!
