Georgia ranks first in attracting business


November 11, 2013
ATLANTA — Georgia was named the No. 1 state to do business by Site Selection magazine, a prominent national economic development trade publication.

The magazine's rankings are based on a survey of corporate real estate executives, an index of tax burden criteria according to the Tax Foundation and KPMG's Location Matters analysis and performance in Conway Data's New Plant Database, which tracks new and expanded business facility activity.

Last year, the Peach State ranked fourth.

Also making the list this year, North Carolina and Texas ranked second and third, respectively.

    ...and 8 of the top 10 are RED states. Imagine that! Low taxes and minimal government meddling = business friendly and job friendly.
