“ Washington is not a place to live in. The rents are high, the food is bad, the dust is disgusting and the morals are deplorable. Go West, young man, go West and grow up with the country.”— Horace Greeley
How things have changed. Now California is shoving people back to the East. Horace is still right about Washington but there is a lot of East between California and Washington and California Businesses are heading East in bunches.
The business consulting firm Spectrum Location Solutions recently estimated that 660 California companies have moved 765 facilities out of California since 2017.
(Read the above paragraph again.)
This includes 10 corporations that have moved their headquarters out of San Francisco.
Discount brokerage firm Charles Schwab was founded in San Francisco in 1973 but it just announced it is relocating its corporate headquarters from San Francisco to lower-cost-and-low-tax Texas.
Schwab has many Good Business Reasons for making this move. Thinking from a Business Point of View can you quibble with any of these reasons?…
Up until now the State of California has combated the loss of tax revenue caused by all these companies leaving because of High Taxes and High Regulations by raising the Taxes and Increasing the Regulatory Burden on the companies that have not left.
The Governor has said raising the Taxes and Increasing the Regulatory Burden on his remaining businesses is the only logical course of action he can take.
When a reporter questioned this “Logical Course of Action” the Governor looked at him with complete disdain and said, “You are being silly. I can’t tax companies that have left the State. I can only tax Companies that have not left the State and by golly I’m going to make them sorry that they are stupid enough to have their businesses in my State!”
Yep. That ought to fix the problem…Or will it?
Would I kid u?
