When the judge actually listens to you and raises bail on your violent ex to $2.5m instead of $250k, so he doesn’t get out and kill you in a school parking lot.

Amazon: Pretty good retailer, a driving force for efficiency and convenience gains enjoyed by consumers from a wide range of companies recently.

Corporate welfare subsidies: Bad.

AOC: Right that corporate welfare subsidies are bad and right to oppose $1.5 billion (or $3B depending on which article I'm reading) in handouts for Amazon.

Also AOC: Probably exaggerating that this is 'vindication' since it isn't as if they are headquartering there or creating anywhere near as many jobs as they would have previously.

Me: I kinda hope that AOC's messaging here wins even if I don't think it's completely justified because I'd like cities and states to stop giving away taxpayer dollars to lure huge corporations to their locale.

She’s also not getting the all infrastructure and construction/support jobs. And the school. And the mass transit improvements. And the tax revenue from the other 23,500 jobs. Instead Amazon will put people into a shiny new space in midtown where they won’t need to ever go near or spend a dollar LIC.

i don't think municipalities should 'give' money to big corporations or to sports franchises to build stadiums.

but if a big corporation is choosing between locations and one municipality is willing to offer them a 'discount' on their tax rate so as to lure them to their town, i have no problem with that if there remain a significant net positive for the municipality (e.g. tens of thousands of jobs).

Quote:
The New York Post, which is representative of extreme conservatives, says essentially that New York "gave Amazon $1 billion." Their argument is factually baseless. New York State and New York City gave Amazon nothing. Amazon, by our current tax structure, would generate approximately $1 billion per year in new revenue. Our proposal offered that, when and if those revenues are realized, the government would effectively reduce their $1 billion payment by about $100 million for a net to New York of approximately $900 million. New York doesn't give Amazon $100 million. Amazon gives New York $900 million. The revenue is from state and city taxes, including income taxes [in New York State and New York City: one of the highest rates in the country] with the second highest millionaire's tax in the country (only California is higher).
