Default Amazon and NYC divorce

This has been out for a while now, but I'm surprised it hasn't generated more discussion here. Any rage New Yorkers here? Just wondering how/if you're reacting to this. 25,000 jobs lost, but then again no tax hand outs to a corporate giant.

I'm mixed on my thoughts on this.

Yeah, both good and bad. Lost revenue, jobs etc but i get what a lot of people are saying as well with property prices already crazy as it is and failing infrastructure

It's stupid for Amazon to pay $0 in taxes for 2018, then turn around and get another $3B in incentives from NYC, and have that tax burden fall on local residents to shoulder.

It is pure demand and offer. Tens of thousands of jobs for re-election or not.
Politicians drop their pants.
Having said this, are there not states that have zero income tax?
Washington I think is one...

I honestly think it's insane how much different places courted Amazon when they were searching for a new HQ location.


Like, I get the idea, but the level they went to to try and incentivize them moving was just ridiculous.
