Anything from Milton Friedman?
von Mises or Hayek?
Let me ask you, if your locality decides to quadruple your taxes... and you could buy a house just down the street... bigger, cheaper, better and with 10% the taxes... would you move?
Of course you would, and it's proven DemocRATS move like the plague... escaping the tax penalizing districts and bringing their disease with them.
Moving down the street... That is what companies are doing and rightly so.
You cannot force what you think is social justice on companies.
Companies are in business, and the best thing you can do is be massively profitable.
When the "Margin of Safety" is too low and "Level of Hassle" too high... you've just f***** the workers.
The best thing is for businesses to leave and for the community to learn a lesson and provide a lesson to other localities.
I love the fact Halliburton relocated its HQ to Dubai.
Democrats just crapped all over them... and then are shocked when they pack up and move.
