Best and worst states for business

The ten best states for business are all run by Republican governors. Chief Executive magazine surveyed 736 CEOs and asked them to grade the states on a variety of indicators such as “taxation and regulation”, “people’s general work ethic and education attainment”, “perceived quality of education and public health facilities, as well as the affordability and quality of real estate, the transportation system and related environmental factors.”

The four worst states for doing business: California, New York, Illinois, and Massachusetts are all run by Democrats. Not surprisingly, companies and people are moving out of those states and moving to states that offer better opportunities.

Not so coincidentally, the four poorest cities according to a Census Bureau report – Detroit, Cleveland, Buffalo, and Milwaukee – are all run by Democrats and have been for as long as fifty years.
