Where Did Americans Move in 2017? - Tax Foundation
States compete with each other in a variety of ways. Competing to attract and retain new residents is just one example.

Manufacturing outlook: Technology and tax to take center stage in 2018 - PwC Industrial Insights
In 2017, the terms “IoT” and “digital” seemed to be the most trending topics within the manufacturing sector. Although most manufacturers are talking about IoT and digital, far fewer have implemented a comprehensive digital strategy. Those manufacturers without a digital strategy could be hindering their business strategy in 2018 and beyond.

While we understand that moving toward a digital transformation is overwhelming, the reality is that digital is the future for manufacturers both big and small.

Major Institutions Building First Multistory Warehouses To Solve NYC's Last-Mile Dilemma - BISNOW

Assessing Prospects for a Port of Quebec Container Terminal - Maritime Executive

More evidence that technology and increased worker productivity, not trade, were behind US factory job losses - AEI
This paper challenges two widely held views: first that trade performance has been the primary reason for the declining share of manufacturing employment in the United States and other industrial economies, and second that recent productivity growth in manufacturing has actually been quite rapid but is not accurately measured.

4 U.S. tech hubs to watch in 2018 - VentureBeat
The cities that I’ve chosen as ones to watch aren’t necessarily those that are home to the most startup activity. Rather, entrepreneurs, investors, or government leaders in the city have proven nimble in identifying what resources tech entrepreneurs will need to grow in their city. Or they’ve dedicated themselves to becoming leaders in a niche technology sector that they think will revolutionize American life. And finally, many of these cities are also home to a promising number of tech startups.

Alabama's Sock Queen opens new shop as small-town manufacturing changes with the times -
Inside a squat metal building on the outskirts of Fort Payne, Ala., huge spools of cheerfully colored thread hang like nursery mobiles above rows of blue knitting machines the size of office copiers.

It's loud in this part of the mill, and Gina Locklear has to shout to be heard. Her eyes light up as she talks about her newest set of machines, installed last January, that can knit a sock with a seamless toe. It's a  It's a capability the mill's older machines don't have. Those were originally built to manufacture white athletic socks, a business that has largely left the country.

Report: Michigan offered Amazon big tax breaks to build Detroit HQ - Detroit Free Press
The state of Michigan would give Amazon big tax breaks for three decades on top of $106 million in public subsidies from Windsor if the e-commerce giant were to pick the Detroit region for its second headquarters, according to a news report.

How a “Robot Tax” Could Reduce Income Inequality - Kellogg Insight
Earlier this year, Microsoft founder Bill Gates threw his support behind a controversial policy: a robot tax. As workers in many sectors are replaced by machines, the government is losing huge amounts of income tax revenue. Taxing the companies that employ robots, Gates reasoned, could help slow the pace of automation, and the revenue could be used to retrain employees.
