Having been sold the wolf in sheep’s clothing before (Fuji Film, BMW) etc., I’m not buying the sell of Amazon’s blessing for selecting NY and the DMV for its new headquarters. It’s not going to end well for folks. It will just take the average Joes Schmoe 25 years to really see how bad it is for their new home and the local economy. Trickle down doesn’t work. And subsidizing a private business (the richest in the world) is just wrong. Business owners have their own motive for operating. It had nothing to do with taxpayers and it should stay that way.
