Three different people sent me links to the article via email or text, including my nephew, who doesn't even live in Connecticut.
I've seen it shared on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn, so it's making the rounds across social media.
If you haven't heard about it, or have but haven't read it yet, you can read it here.
But please keep in mind that while the article does make some valid points, and backs it up with data, it did get at least one thing wrong.
Author Derek Thompson stated the following: "Meanwhile, companies leaving Connecticut aren't exactly headed to El Paso."
He made the comment in reference to the fact that General Electric moved its headquarters to Boston, and UBS and Aetna either moved or will move to New York City and that neither New York nor Massachusetts are low-tax locations..
Well, while those companies certainly are the highest-profile corporations to move their HQs out of Connecticut, it is simply not true that companies aren't moving to tax-friendlier states. The list is long, but here's a sampling: Peter Paul moved from Naugatuck to Virginia. Borgeson Universal relocated from Torrington to South Carolina. PTR, a gun manufacturer, moved from Bristol to South Carolina. ErgoTech of Danbury moved its headquarters to Florida.
So it's just not accurate to suggest that companies aren't moving out of Connecticut in search of a better business climate just because Aetna and GE didn't. There may not be many that moved to El Paso, Texas, but plenty have relocated to states long recognized as much more business-friendly than Connecticut.
