VCs await regulatory clarity on Opportunity Zones, the latest tactic to draw capital to the Heartland - VentureBeat
It’s an oft-cited statistic that 75 percent of venture capital in the U.S. goes to just three states: New York, California, and Massachusetts — and it has for years. If it’s going to take years to close that gap, why not offer an incentive for investors to put their money in other places?

American Airlines' message on HQ2: What’s good for us in North Texas would be good for Amazon - Dallas News
At an investor conference this month, the president of American Airlines said, “We love all of our hubs.” He then explained why the world’s biggest carrier loves Dallas-Fort Worth a little more than the others.

He was talking about efforts to increase profits at three major hubs, led by DFW International Airport. But there’s more to the story and it has particular relevance for the leaders of Amazon, who are deep into the search for a second headquarters.
