Craig Huey Economics, Government 2 Comments

The government policies of excessive taxes are killing jobs and wage increases.

Entrepreneurs also find it impossible to succeed.

That’s why so many companies leave their families and friends, and move to more business-friendly states.

Here are the best business-friendly states:

  1. South Dakota
  2. Nevada
  3. Texas
  4. Wyoming
  5. Washington
  6. Florida
  7. Alabama
  8. Ohio
  9. Colorado
  10. Alaska
  11. North Carolina
  12. Indiana
  13. Arizona
  14. Michigan
  15. Utah

These states are at the bottom of the rung for business friendliness:

  1. Nebraska
  2. Connecticut
  3. Maine
  4. Oregon
  5. Vermont
  6. New York
  7. Hawaii
  8. Iowa
  9. Minnesota
  10. New Jersey
  11. California

  1. I’m surprised by Nebraska and Iowa on the worst list and be Washington on the best list. This news put Washington on my list to consider when I bail out of the California Peoples’ Republic.
