New Ranking Reveals 2023’s Most Business Friendly States

CNBC’s annual ranking of states shows that 8 of the top 10 ranked by economic development are Red States, and 9 of the top 10 ranked by business-friendly policies are Red States.

“This should not come as a surprise, as woke ideology continues to hurt these bigger blue states,” said RedBalloon CEO Andrew Crapuchettes. “While much of the blue world is focused on DEI and other woke virtue signaling, businesses are self-selecting those states that focus on policies that help businesses grow and thrive in today’s tough economy.”

The free-market needs freedom to thrive. That means lower taxes, less regulation, strong infrastructure, and an educated, work-ready workforce. That’s why it should also be no surprise that the bottom 10 in pro-business policies include two of the nation’s largest states: New York and California.

“There’s an ongoing exodus from New York and California to places like Florida and Texas,” continued Crapuchettes. “We’ve labeled this the great sort, as businesses and families seek out more friendly policies in which to establish their roots.”

“This helps explain how California went from a $55 billion budget surplus last year to a $32 billion deficit this year,” said Crapuchettes. “As more producers leave the state, the higher the percentage of those who draw resources from the government.” Top Ten States for Economic Development

It is very cool that you have made such lists, as for me, it is much easier to find a place where you can realise yourself faster and better compared to other states, for example. I really want to start my own business, but my studies are stopping me a little bit, even though I have help with writing research proposal help, but the college bureaucracy does not allow me to start creating my business now, so I will probably have to wait until I graduate and then start building my business. I am very grateful to you for such a wonderful article, thanks to you I am learning new things about the topic that interests me so much.
