Nobody could have predicted this move:
Amazon.com is reconsidering its plan to bring 25,000 jobs to a new campus in New York City, according to two people familiar with the company’s thinking, following a wave of political and community opposition.
Hailed as an economic triumph when it was announced by Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo (D) and Mayor Bill de Blasio (D), the project now faces withering criticism from some elected officials and advocacy groups appalled at the prospect of giving giant subsidies to the world’s most valuable company, led by its richest man.
I really can’t hate the player too much here, since they’re just playing the game that every other big corporation plays to get tax cuts with the promise of economic development. Unfortunately for New York, I have a feeling that Amazon isn’t going anywhere.
