VA has few urban centers that could compete with Charlotte or Atlanta. Richmond's growth rate lags far behind either of those two cities. Hampton Roads is growing very slowly. Most of VA's eggs are in the NoVa basket so to speak. I really think they need to worry a little that almost all the growth, money, and employment is there.

But anyway, let's not get distracted here. This isn't the VA forum. Let's keep the topic focused on Amazon and Atlanta's position.
Step on my toes? Lolol...I don't have a dog in this fight as I'm not from VA nor have I ever lived there. But GA is in the same boat as VA with all of the jobs and population growth in their biggest metro. At least VA does have two other major metros with other things to offer, and Richmond has a lot of corporate HQs for its size and is doing pretty well economically. Of course, NC does better than both GA and VA with two high-growth, economically dynamic metros. But population growth in and of itself isn't everything and economically, VA is doing well for itself and probably has a larger GDP per capita than both GA and NC. The slower population growth rate in VA also allows the infrastructure to keep pace with population growth.

But I suppose we have digressed enough.

Evidence?

Here's a link to GDP rankings:

9. GA
10. NC
13. VA
