that coordinates the monitoring on the fiscal side we have discussed the ability to do that on the program side and it has been a challenge because each department has such a different framework. though, we continue to talk about it but we have not quite mastered how to bring that altogether. >> we do, talk to each other more, when there is honestly when there is a problem if there is an agency that is not performing well we will go to the different departments and find out if there is a extrasgy. >> great, thank you and i think that, in terms of the program, and sort of the measurement across the various departments i think that it is something that i am interested in and i know that i am glad that we do have a fiscal monitoring so that we are not duplicating our funding for the same services and, but that is something that down the line i will probably try to talk with you about, and so in any case, again, i very aware of the grant funding that we usually get and so i am happy to support these. >> and thank you, supervisor

10:40 am
counsel everyone and those of you were not seated yet, please grab a seat. i'm joe letterman on the president and ceo of the their account so it is nice to have you all here today. born excitement and some exciting news that we have. you may be a little anticipatory as to what it is based on the nature of the invitation, were not supposed to give it away. i was a we invited gov. rick perry to come and he seems to have declined. so that may make more a story about this. as where mating the us olympic committee is about to be meeting or maybe meeting already to determine who is their pick for the us big-city and of course san francisco is among those good one without giving again anything away, once we do get this weight we should probably quickly get him some notice what happens here this morning because it should weigh heavily
10:41 am
in our favor. so i want to thank very busy fellow mayor ed lee are coming here today. and being with s&ls began a moment. i want to thank the milken institute for asking me to convene this. i was actually down at their summit calorie florida and los angeles last month speaking about innovation in cities and giving some examples actually in san francisco's something this thing he has done amazingly well that is resulted in transition to becoming one of the absolutely top model economies not only in the country but in the world. so, after they heard my pitch they asked if they told me was going on and asked if i'd be willing to can being with them and reach out to mayor lee and his team and they said they be light delighted to do this. milken institute is apparent spastic asset to have them here in california. they are leaders in leading-edge innovative thinking a whole number of topics and one of the things they delightfully focus on is innovation in cities. what that means to economies and what it
10:42 am
means to our country, and we are really proud to be able to partner with the milken institute on this event here today. the bear was the counsel and our job was to sell this work with our cities and our entire region to support its economy and quality of life for everybody who lives and works in this great place we call home and were very very fortunate to have such great city that make up the bay area and here we are in san francisco not only a leading-edge economy in the world but certainly one of the most iconic places on our planet . it just i work for the city for a number of years in the mayor's office and is just a minute amazing and amazing place. san jose, and amazing city the capital of silicon valley. oakland, right across the bay with the new mayor just starting out her term [inaudible] in san jose. these are exciting times in the bay
10:43 am
area. mayor lee, of course running for reelection who will announce here today. i believe may even help why then help that he needs to get more credibility to the story of what is happening in the city and the transformation that's taken place. so, i want to thank everybody for coming for joining us in making this announcement. my next job is to introduce [inaudible] from the milken institute who will talk a little bit about the project and the process that the milken institute has for looking at the quality of cities here in our country and then he in turn will introduce our honored guest of mayor ed lee. so let me turn it over to ross and after the comments we should have a little time for questions and conversation. ross. >> well thank you very much, jim. it's a pleasure to be here. we have been performing this budget since 1899. it was
10:44 am
originally published in forbes but we decided to take it in house and publish ourselves about four or five years after that. the index is really an outcome based measure of economic performance. it is a look at traditional business cost warehousing costs were quality of life such as crime rates. we believe that both static measures are certainly important, but they don't cover the true dynamics and they can be very subjective. so, we believe communities that can create jobs and attract human capital are the best performance cities over the long haul. the goal to help businesses investors, industry associations economic development agencies, academics, public policy groups, monitor and evaluate performance in where they work, and where they live, relative to the rest of the country. and
10:45 am
as we've already noted, it's no surprise were releasing this today in san francisco, so san francisco is number one this year. yes. >> [applause] >> in a moment you're going to see what a remarkable accomplishment that is as i go through some of these metrics. what i would like to do is acknowledge my co-authors who are with us today. minority rights and whose here. could you please stand. she's here back in the waiting. she did our work of putting the metrics together and a lot of the analysis and also join us as armand petrosian's, is an adjunct fellow with the institute. he projected two years ago that san francisco would move to number one so he decided to change careers away from being an economist and move back to san francisco to run the family business which is a sub center at in the west portal area. armand, carrier somewhere. there he is in the back as i do note that soap unitas, a 20 in the west [inaudible] area and armand cannot only sell you a sub he
10:46 am
can also be be some economic advice. so, in the 2014 index there are really two top stories and they are technology and shale oil. they are the overarching factors by ms. performance. these metrics on this list possess a variety of other positive traits than the ones i just mentioned, but those are the factors that really determining the top 25. several metrics on the list all the way even down the top 25 are really have innovation advantage. they are able to offset high cost sometimes higher tax rates and a burdensome regulatory environment by clustering talent and technology together in an entrepreneurial ecosystem and that is really what the leaders in this list will demonstrate. also, technological advances in horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing are altering the energy landscape
10:47 am
of the united states energy investment claim the larger share of gdp last year since the early 1980s and the us is producing 4 million barrels of oil more per day than it did just five years ago. now going forward we so were prices decline because they change that dynamic such that further investments in oil exploration may not be at the same rate as they happen but many people believe that oil prices are covered $70 a barrel there still be a shale oil revolution underway in the united states. so, as i mentioned, san francisco was number one. but you know rick perry has counted performance in texas metrics for many years. he was a number one this year. could not claim it but he did have five out of the top 10. on this list. so, texas has a unique combination of tech, energy strength in a very favorable business climate. california had four metros in the top 25 as well as colorado did. there were seven
10:48 am
metros my top 25 that are really there because of the energy explosion in the united states. and another depiction of that is that we have our small best-performing cities. they are roughly 8179 smallest metros and fargo north dakota minnesota was number one among that group was related to [inaudible] and the positive spillover effects. in another one common area, west palm beach was the biggest improver for the year-to-year moving up 93 spots from last year. that has to do with the end in housing bust in that area of the country. so these are some the metrics that we used in evaluating metros. we look at job growth, wages, technology growth, over the most recent five years and over the most
10:49 am
recent one year. that smooth things out over the business cycle is of what anyone year determine the rankings because that can be very volatile. so, we also include your over your job growth in the most recent month which is in this case, prior to publication was august of last year. so, employment and wages are more highly rated because they are critical to community vitality. wages and salary signal the quality of the jobs being created a metropolitan area and also there are other measures to measure the concentration of diversity and it's really a way to look at the community involvement in the so-called knowledge-based economy. this is a chart that shows employment growth relative to the peak of this recession relative to others and what you'll notice is that this recovery has been relatively mild compared to previous ones.
10:50 am
and overall job growth in the country really determine some of the pattern of regional growth around the country. now the good news is that the mac in the second quarter of last year all of the 8.7 million jobs that were lost during the previous recession had finally been recovered. so, we are finally adding jobs in the united states overall. now let's get to san francisco to me run through some of these metrics that really are starting when you look at them. san francisco wasn't on the top list in a truly remarkable recovery. if the entrepreneurial ecosystem that exist here in social media, mobile apps, cloud-based computing and storage, software, computer systems design, internet publishing, clean tech, biotechnology, and medical research. in short, it's the [inaudible] incentive economy that is both here. once
10:51 am
again, it's the clustering of technology and talent that shares you the advantages that operating a dense urban environment can provide that offsets higher tax rates and cost of living. so, in terms of broad growth troubles in the past five years san francisco, the metro-area division, ranked fifth in the country. across all metros and that's just really remarkable across a conscience as i said. so it really catapulted system i had posted to austin which was second this year, was his first place finish in wage and salary growth over the past five years and in 2013. so, san francisco had the highest overall wage growth in the country over that period of time. so it is really the quality of these jobs that is driving that i wage growth in the technology sector and it's no surprise that all these young talented skilled workers are flocking into the city. and the demand is driving up wages
10:52 am
so unemployment in these tech related occupations is below two percent today. in the area. when you consider that san francisco has double the concentration of technology that the us does over all, strong growth, a strong base, it resulted a lot of economic activity because the employment multiplier is around five. meaning, there are four other jobs that are created outside the tech area that are dependent upon one tech job. this shows you the category of professional technical scientific services employment.. yes. employment in that area. it really when i look at the data, i was surprised i didn't believe it initially. but over the past five years 25,500 jobs have been created in this category. it accounts for 45 percent of total job growth in the metro division. that is once again an amazing
10:53 am
accomplishment. these occupations paid over $90,000 per employee versus the us average of about $70,000 in the same categories. and, when you look more specifically within the tech sector, 160,000 per employee. so these are very high wage jobs. we all are aware of the rapidly expanding startups to mike top boxes are unpacked down to the list. there rapid clip and absorbing tremendous amounts of office space in the area. but it's not just startups. companies like oracle are diversifying. their employment-based hiring in the city. i then programmers and developers in the city. and further scrambling to find enough space so for example salesforces hopefully going to be moving into a new office tower within the next couple of
10:54 am
years and even bloomberg is opening r&d facility south of market being near the tech corridor door. so medical research biotechnology along with social media and apps are really fueling this group growth. along with university of california, san francisco medical school is expanding its research and clinical footprint. let me briefly mention a few others. austin the second and is the most consistent performer in our top five. it's a night dynamic generator of jobs in the technology sector. just to give you a sense of the consistency among it ranked first third and ninth in job growth respectively from 2008 through 2003. in 2003 and year-over-year in august of this year. also it has very high wage growth. another part of the country, also in the west about polo was in the top three and really between san francisco boston and provo they were very close at the top three there. provo actually led
10:55 am
the country in job growth over the past year rising 5.3 percent. so, another significant up, which meant. when you look at gross metro product and provo it grew by seven and half percent versus the us about 2.4 percent. so, low taxes payroll business climate there. fortunately have another barrier of economy and the top five san jose the silicon valley area and is the largest technology hub in the country. and the world for that matter. that division employed 270,000 people in the technology sector. it has the hardware component of high tech. so the single rigid capital is not only [inaudible] some firms in the valley but they're setting firms in san francisco now and it is one of the most successful ecosystems in turning research into possible companies. also has a very high level educational
10:56 am
team so silicon valley has double the us average of people with a masters degree or above with 21 percent. so 20 percent of the workforce is oakland valley has a masters degree or above. also, representing the southeast raleigh carried also another perennial top performer. it has sought employment growth for the several years and also saw saw its job creation rate accelerate in the past year and over the past 12 months was fourth in the category in the country. let me just briefly mention some of the small performing metros. as i said, fargo was number one, very diverse economy for small metro. it has healthcare. it
10:57 am
has financial services. and another thing, we'll see what happens given the declining oil prices in terms of the oil boom but overall, looking at the numbers, it truly was a remarkable performance by san francisco and let me introduce the man who has been leading that effort. am not one to typically stands up and tells us what great jobs mayors are doing but i tell them what they should be doing but mayor lee is showing us what should be done and deserves a lot of the credit for this growth in technology and other creative services and improving the quality of life in the community. mayor lee. >> [applause] >> ross, thank you for that wonderful presentation and jim, it's also pleasure to work with you and they are counsel. the milken institute. thank you for showing that san francisco continues to be the best city to live to work to play. i am very very honored to be its mayor. i get to work with quite
10:58 am
a few great talented in our city and some of them are in the audience. that help me continue making the city a success. i want to say too that this is up in the case. i've been around long enough to know that. you know, my favorite line in this discussion, ross, that our job growth is really an unrivaled accomplishment quote unquote. we forget sometimes just not very long ago how hard it was to match imagine this. how unprecedented this recovery is, given that when you look at the other cities that we are compared to, you know that we are very limited geographically. so we have to be pretty inventive as to how we do this. we have worked hard. there are some basic things that i'll share with you as part of the panel today as to how we may have
10:59 am
gotten there but we were not seeking to be the best city. i think were just seeking to make sure we got out of this recession. well and that we are always going to be talking with our business partners because when am i main questions with the business community is, calmly look around the corner. help us as a city, as a region, prevent ourselves from being thrust into another recession. what are the jobs and the industries that sustain itself throughout any economic challenge that the nation might confront? now these days the world economy could impact us. so, we work hard. to earn this title and i think that now that we've created more jobs than any time in our city's history, were not going to sit on this group were going to really try to move forward. those of us that have lived in san francisco and seen our city and our regions growth, know this first-hand. we know that
11:00 am
businesses in our downtown, and our soma, are growing. we've seen those companies from the valley so we moved to an extent in san francisco. we have seen this as a positive thing. there is amazing success stories of not only those that have grown here but now those that have started here have become tycoons in the business community. salesforce twitter yelp and so many others. you know this amazing story also says to us that we are excited and i'm excited because it isn't just one sector. this is the thing that i will keep over and over again. industries like healthcare, click biotech, tourism, construction, manufacturing and more but we also see technology very strongly woven into all these different industries. this is the excitement that i continue to share with our chamber of
