Alex's Outlook

Friday, August 29, 2003

The Wall Street Journal online has the goods on the population exodus from liberal states. Thanks to enormous taxes imposed by their legislatures, California and New York have seen a net exodus of over 750,000 people each in the last eight years. Florida, Arizona and Nevada, two bastions of conservatism, have seen the largest gains. Other high cost-of-living states like New Jersey have seen similar emigrations, just as other red states like North Carolina have enjoyed similar gains; for example, $7,000 in Durham, NC brings you the same value that $45,000 does in New York.
