Business Friendly States

Forbes has a great article about the effects of being an anti-business friendly state. The article is entitled, "Anti-Business States Awash in Red Ink." The article notes that the states that push businesses out of their state, through increased regulations and taxation, often rely on the federal government to bail them out for their budget shortfalls. Check it out at this link.

Interesting. I wonder how Oregon (which barely taxes businesses at all, it seems) stacks up?

great article. thank you for sharing it!

I don't think of Oregon as having a particularly inviting business atm- in part b/c of the kybosh on capital spending, and then the overall anti-corp atm that lies in a heavy economics smog over the metropoliton areas.
