Here are the other 13 lists where Indiana failed to crack the top 10: —alternative energy industry —best business climate —best business tax climate —best education climate —best transportation infrastructure —biofuels manufacturing research —biotechnology strength —cost of labor —economic growth potential —employment leaders —quality of life —work force health and safety —work force training leaders Note that Indiana didn’t even qualify in its traditional strengths of infrastructure and business climate.
