Top Business States in U.S.



"We demand that big business give the people a square deal;
  in return we must insist that when anyone engaged in big business
  honestly endeavors to do right he shall himself be given a square deal."

  ~ President Theodore Roosevelt ~


AEDI/Pollina Corporate Top 10 Pro-Business Study for 2014


The International Monetary Fund states that the U.S. lacks a “credible strategy” to stabilize its mounting debt. The lingering recession, deficit spending,   family debt, disastrous trade policies, offshoring of jobs, high taxes, tax   loopholes, choking regulations, a decline in research and development, overzealous unions, out-of-control medical costs, and an outdated educational  system are convincing evidence of the failure of the American economic model.   

Most of these problems stem from political leadership, both Democratic and Republican, that has been unable to perceive and adjust to the rigors of a  global economy and the competition it has created. This same leadership is so focused on each election and the funding necessary to win that it has lost sight of its responsibility to the American people.
The Pollina Corporate Top 10 Pro-Business States study, now in its eleventh year, draws attention to those states with political leaders who have a strategic plan that works as well as states that need help. The study is a joint endeavor of the American Economic Development Institute and Pollina Corporate Real Estate, Inc.

The study examines 32 factors relative to state efforts to be pro-business and has become recognized as the “Gold Standard” for evaluating states. It is the most comprehensive and impartial examination (with no advertising) of states available.
