New York is losing the battle to lure outsourced jobs now slowly trickling back to the US and more competitive regions are poaching Gothams jobs.
The tax breaks and incentives to stem New Yorks slide? Too little, too late, critics say.
If youre a businessman thinking of bringing jobs back to one of the 50 states, then New York is at the bottom of that list, said Neal Asbury, a manufacturer who grew up in Morristown, NJ, and has studied New Yorks high cost base.
You have a governor telling the world he doesnt want conservatives in his state because you have to think like him and you have a New York City mayor obsessed with raising taxes to pay for more entitlements. That is not sending a great message,

I've been looking in areas around Greenwich, CT; Tarrytown, NY and Ramsey, NJ and see endless neighborhoods of million dollar homes. I wonder how it can be that so many people can afford to live there but apparently it is being done. NYC might be on the decline but it's still the largest metro area in the country by far.
People vote with their feet... New York’s becoming a liberal hellhole. Not as bad as Detroit, but on the way...
Yep, it’s all in the database now. I’m not saying that’s a good thing but its just the way it is.
This article is sooo wrong. California is at the bottom of my list. THEN New York.
Or do the same thing California did: decide they were losing too much money with their business-friendly tax laws and pass a new law guaranteed to bring in more revenue by deciding that the current laws were too lenient and pass a newer and more restrictive taxing scheme and make it retroactive.
So all those businesses that had saved so much in less taxes over the years now found themselves liable for several years worth of 'back taxes'.
Maybe New York should institute caning and the death penalty for drug trafficking.
I get it. It’s just a shame you have to stay in a part of the country that was once the cradle of liberty, now a bastion of liberalism. I know there’s lots of folks in the northeast that, if circumstances permitted, would be long gone. Good luck with the move, house hunting and your job.
No, not any more. That’s the way it USED to be — before they had the police linked to a central insurance database. That’s kind of what the poster was complaining about, as evidence of a “fascist state.”
Not sad. America has ALWAYS been about making your own choices. They chose differently from you.
But what’s sad, is that I can understand why they gave up being US Cits. . .
Just a matter of time until the next Fed bailout of NYC.
Some of them will bring their families to California.
The ones who will be more successful in the long run are the ones who will take their work experience back to India and run competing businesses in the same product fields from a part of the world with a more rational regulation structure.
Exact parallel for this?
Who did better in the Sixties and Seventies - auto engineers who came to the US and worked with the industry here, or the ones who went back to Asia and worked for Toyota or Mitsubishi or what is today Kia?
Short term it looked like the ones who stayed here. Long and medium term, it was the ones who went back to Asia.
I love the taste of schadenfreude in the morning.
You raise good points there, but some of those moves began some years ago — and are also tied to changes in corporate operations in the aftermath of the Exxon-Mobil merger.
Well, based on the recent election results in the UK, there is hope. Seems like UKIP has upset the apple cart a tad.
Ah, I see. And even though I said paper insurance cards were ‘backward’, I’m not comforted by all our personal data being in government databases.
Just yesterday, I met a lovely couple with their toddler son. Almost immediately, I was asked if I listened to NPR. Twenty years ago the question was, "Did you see that article in today's Times?" A few months ago it was, "I'm asking people to sponsor me for the (insert leftist charity here) and I'm hoping you'll sign up."
Liberals will not let you live. It is the Fascist Impulse.
“It is the fascist impulse.”
They are the real life body snatchers.
There really is no such thing as "affordable" in North Jersey.
You've made your point, in spades.
