    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Wow. All those new doctors, yet the price of health care didn't go down. Plus, how exactly is pulling doctors from other parts of the country to help one state's numbers in terms of doctors, going to work for the entire country? You are still working from the same size pool of doctors. In addition, how does that compare to other states without tort reform? What are the number of new doctors in those states?

    Balancing the budget with stimulus money from the federal government and by requiring the local governments within the state to have to defund important public programs such as education and in at least one case, a police force.

    If the businesses are all over the state, then they are already in the state. His policy had nothing to do with improving TX economy, but rather financing his own political ambitions.

    It isn't a list about those things you mentioned. The list is specifically about doing business in a state and the leading factors that lead to increasing business interests in a state.

    Yep, a liberal failure, 26000 new doctors relocating to the state

    Let me also remind you, my county had 600,000 spent on illegal's use of the ER in my county alone. Healthcare costs aren't going down until the Federal Govt. gets illegal immigration under control

    Those things affect the cost of doing business, and a states ability to attract skilled workers and improve the quality of life in the state. The factors it included and excluded seem based on whether it made a case for business, and not an objective measure of economic competitiveness.

    A sure sign of its bias is that it puts NY at #45 while many of the worlds largest and most important corps disagree

    Freedoms and personal responsibility, not the nanny state mentality of liberals.

    Are you sure that those new doctors are unique to TX or even that they came there just due to the tort reform? Do you even know what the increase in doctors per state has been annually per state?

    Health care costs could easily go down, both those paid by the people and those paid by the government to help make up for those who can't pay by having an actual NHS, not a national health insurance system.

    Since I live in the state, yes, I know those doctors are unique to TX as is the net job gain which isn't occurring in your home state. By the way, I absolutely love San Diego which quite frankly is better than the rest of the state which it comes to being reasonable.
