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.
