 Business Insider — which last year said Colorado had the fastest-growing economy of any state, a ranking that played a role in the 2014 governor's race — once again is lauding the Centennial State.A new ranking from the online business-news source says Colorado has the third-best state economy.Colorado ranks behind only energy-rich North Dakota and Texas, and Business Insider says we "fared pretty well across the board.""Colorado, like many western states, has a disproportionately large oil and mining sector," it notes. "With Denver's central location between the densely populated coasts making the city a natural hub, air transportation and telecommunications also have an outsize share of Colorado's employment."Business Insider based its rankings on six measures: recent changes in housing prices, non-farm payroll job growth, unemployment rate, GDP per capita, average weekly wage, and state government surplus and deficit.
