    Looks like most are moving to Texas. Wonder what they have going for them. Cheap illegal immigration?

    This happens all the time and California is a mess given its massive highway system and poor public transportation systems. There is always a curious irony when a business tool such as Vranich tells you the obvious with biased analysis and lots of finger pointing. It's always nice to scapegoat, keeps thought away from blame. Textiles left Philly many years ago, it went south for wages, then it went overseas because of cheaper. Was Philly bad for business? Of course not, business doesn't care about Philly they care about money. Same with companies leaving California. One can simplify this complexity but until we support companies in America, buy American, and companies regain some sense of responsibility to the nation that provides their knowledge and market, we can whine like the conservatives and republicans and libertarians do till the cows too move off shore or to cheap labor areas. Or we can designate America a third world nation and pay accordingly. Actually Ikea already knows this: Ikea Using U.S. for Cheap Labor, Behaving Ruthlessly American - Business - GOOD

    Number 5 below should be number one.

    The Business Relocation Coach: Why do Companies Leave California? Here Are Ten Reasons (Updated)

    "Many organizations and companies provide reasons why companies leave California. Below are some of the findings, updated in light of recent studies and reports.

    #10 Reason (New!) – Unprecedented Energy Costs:
    #9 – Severe Tax Treatment:
    #8 – Worst Regulatory Burden:
    #7 – Dreadful Legal Treatment:
    #6 – Most Expensive Business Locations:
    #5 – Provable Savings Elsewhere:
    #4 – Downright Unfriendly:
    #3 – Uncontrollable Spending:
    #2 – Excessively Adversarial:
    #1 – The ‘Outpouring’ of Poor Rankings Continues: "

    So why is it so damned impossible for some of those among us to get a grasp on the concept that if these "no-nos" are mandated coast-to-coast that America will go down the drain as well?

    I saw this coming for CA back in the 80's.

    California is like a bowl of Granola, what is not fruits is nuts and flakes.

    Makes sense. Why would a Business want to operate in California? The Socialist/Progressive nutters destroyed Business opportunities a long time ago out there. The Takers are beginning to outnumber the Producers in California. They're rapidly becoming a real Third World mess. It's sad.
