Companies have been fleeing high-tax/high-regulation Connecticut for years. They won’t stay here, they won’t move here, they certainly won’t start here. Nope, there’s no escaping the fact that our once-great state now sends a very clear message to the business world: STAY AWAY.
What can be done? On tomorrow’s radio show, I will interview John Boyd, Jr., Principal of The Boyd Company, which consults major companies on site selection. As you can imagine, by the time a CT company contacts Boyd, they have already decided they’re going to move, so Boyd helps them pick a state with the most favorable tax and legislative climate.
I’ll be asking John if there is any hope for our dopey state, and what realistically could we get (those idiots up in) Hartford to do to fix things.
Tune in tomorrow morning Wednesday, Feb. 21st, 11:00 AM -12:00 PM. The interview with Boyd starts around 11:30, before that, Jonathan Wilcox and I will discuss the Greenwich real estate market and why, oh why, should it take an average of 320 days to sell your damned house?
