Lessons from the Amazon HQ2 Tax Break Race - Tax Foundation
States and localities give away billions of dollars annually in tax incentives, so Amazon’s situation is nothing new. But they’re an extremely inefficient way to provide tax relief or grow the economy. When incentivized firms relocate, incumbent businesses and individuals end up footing the bill for the increased demand in public services.

New York Is a Genuine Tech Hub (and That Was Before Amazon) - The New York Times
In 2003, Craig Nevill-Manning, a computer scientist at Google, wanted to set up an engineering outpost in New York. Google’s top leaders were skeptical, but they told him that he could go ahead if he could find 15 “Google-worthy” software developers in the city. Mr. Nevill-Manning found his developers and opened the engineering office in New York. Today, Google employs 7,000 people in the city, and more than half are engineers and technical staff. The Google story mirrors the rise and evolution of New York as a genuine tech hub.
