THE AMAZON HQ2 DEBACLE Amazon promised 25,000 new jobs in a new secondary headquarters called HQ2 in New York City in exchange for a $3 billion tax incentive. Suddenly, the rabble rousers and the protesters got restless and the deal was undone as Amazon decided to pull out. Is this a victory for the little guy? Tom lays it out.

Here are two of the articles Tom referenced in preparing for this episode: Amazon had New York City in the bag. Then left-wing activists got fired up and Amazon HQ2 defeat is a win for Queens activists but a ‘facepalm’ for tech leaders.

When a small minority holds a city hostage. Its being blamed on unions though, but the real cause was the shrill objections by a very small portion of the NYC populace.

Guess what? All those jobs and opportunities are going to other places. Enjoy your decline, New York City and environs. No wonder your town is getting run into the ground.
