How Cities Attract Job: Lower Taxes and Less Red Tape

Lower taxes and less red tape.  That is how cities attract businesses that produce jobs.  It all seems so simple, but when a city is addicted to more and more revenue, it can lose sight of the simple formula that works.

Drew Carey is trying to save the city that refuses to be saved.

Notice the city council man who is proud of helping a small business owner cut through the red tape.  The small businessman had bee trying for ten years.  The councilman cuts that down to to a year and a half more.  He is proud of that accomplishment.

Contrast that with Houston.  A Belgian company moving into town gets its paperwork done ... in a day.
