Another study ranks California last on business friendliness

The Orange County Register reported that “California ranks last on the 2012 list of states’ friendliness to business, a ranking compiled for nine years by Illinois-based Pollina Corporate Real Estate. ‘California has been Number 50 for nine years. It’s last by a sizeable margin,’ said Vice President Brent Pollina who co-authored the study. ‘This is one of the most extensive reports out there. We try to keep it as objective as possible.’ ¬†Pollina used 32 factors including personal, corporate and property taxes; workers’ compensation insurance costs; state education systems; state debt per capita; electricity costs; economic development costs; quality of workforce; infrastructure spending; and interviews with corporate executives about the states that are contacting them about relocating.” See the entire story here.
