The reason Silicon Valley is so popular is because it gives companies at least 25% boost on their value when they're established there.
If Texas becomes the next hub for this, we'll see the exact same thing repeat there.
Investors will flock there along with very well paying jobs and the prices will go up. The cycle just starts again.

It's the free market at play, fuck it. Why don't you be the first person to help them in their plight? Are you willing to pay higher taxes to help them? If you aren't willing then why do you want the rich people to do it?
The problem with the economy is not what you grade school retards think. It's not rich people being rich that causes poverty. It's the amassing or hoarding of capital and not spending and reinvesting it that causes poverty. If you redistributed the wealth of Bezos you would probably get a few dollars per person. And now you have one less businessman with nothing to show for it. And now you have one less piggy bank to do the investing for you.
Its just pretty fucking dumb to think that contractionary measures like raising taxes can possibly revive a shrinking economy. The whole leftist agenda of taxing the daylights out of everyone is just a "feel good" thing just like donating to Zimbabwe by buying a coffee from Starbucks. Most of the time these people have absolutely no idea what the real consequences are going to be, they have no education on basic economics, and just shout for these things quite simply out of spite and hatred for the rich. Despite whatever they want you to believe, it's jealousy that fuels their rage.

Anyone telling you education is a retard the real reason is that computer parts made in Asia are cheaper because it's their first port of call over sea.

Tech companies in particular, who prop up california, are so anti-public service they've created entire ecosystems within their private companies including free meals, usually at least breakfast and lunch, on site or subsidized gyms, even recreational areas. The big one companies are already planning cities where their employees can live around new campuses. The money makers and IP creators are literally as far attached from the government as possible

>Nuclear power is expensive as hell per MW
In initial investment sure however the actual efficacy of solar and wind is questionable with solar being a massive money pit and DOE has already decided to wind down the sodium tower push as they simply will never produce the wattage promised such as Crescent Dunes which was a massive failure and is being shuttered.

Additionally neither of these options are particularly green the chemicals and materials necessary for solar panel production are very much a hazard to human health and are very socially irresponsible. And wind produces an incredible amount of waste the life span of blades is poor due to their construction which is generally composite resins supported by a glass fiber matrix which is impossible to recycle and takes up massive room in landfills frankly wind makes nuclear look like a joke when it comes to the space needed for waste and the amount of total land per megawatt

Being against deregulation as a whole shows lack of knowledge into most basic economics.

In short, most regulations favor corporations because these complicate matters for small businesses into convoluted bureaucracy, fees, inspections, licenses, lawyer fees, advisory (lest you, God forbid, get fined) and limiting flexibility to decision-making, all the while corporations can hire skilled lawyers and accountants to circumvent regulations with creative loop-holes and thus can find a way to crush small-fish competition even harder.

No competition --> monopoly/duopoly/oligopoly --> everyone but them is poorer overall (last arrow is explained in any book on basic economics).

Making the rules fair and simple, that any worker can read and understand can better keep corporations at bay than any good-willed regulation ever could.
Thus, deregulation is in most cases good. Simplifying tax codes, is good. We are already on at least a dozen books per industry. This is unacceptable and I applaud any attempt at deregulating, even if it cuts it just a bit.

I work in the food industry. We get Law courses up our ass. There are meticulous regulations on, say, the color of an apple even if it is perfectly tasty and healthy. WTF? Likewise, bananas got ranges of the angle of its curve. Totally unnecessary and only hurts the cooperatives, small businesses and such, despite all the good-will intended.

No self respecting economic-Marxist would support further regulating, as it crushes worker-owned factories. Neither would a capitalist, as fir them the more competitors the better. Neither would, darn, nigh anything that isnt a reddit memer.

Thus my question. You need to read a few economics books stat.

They lack the self awareness to reflect on why they're being paid so much and have an absolutist my income is all that matters mentality
The reality is tech bros are the major reason for the housing shortage, the companies they work for lobby to build larger corporate campuses but do nothing to increase the number of units in the area to offset the new jobs they created
Secondly the jobs they do pay so much because the companies they work have found a way to skirt the laws around monopolization of markets and anti-competitive practices, the bros are paid to not start other companies, it's cheaper to keep all the possible competition on the payroll instead of having to buyout their startups.

their k-12 is dogshit tho.

Summer break is in full swing, but with August days away, the start of the school year is fast approaching. As kids beg for new backpacks and parents mentally prepare for another schedule shift, personal finance website WalletHub is taking a look at the country’s statewide school systems. And for California, the results are grim.

According to WalletHub’s analysis, California has the 9th worst school system in the nation, thanks in part to low reading and math test results, a high dropout rate and an abysmal score (worst in the nation) for the high number of pupils per teachers in our classrooms.

Besides those mentioned above, WalletHub’s ranking examined a variety of other factors, like SAT scores, the percentage of graduates to complete an AP exam and overall safety. The latter, which included the percentage of high school students who reported being threatened or injured with a weapon at school, bullying incident rates and youth incarceration rates, definitely played a role in California’s inclusion in the bottom ten. The state ranked 49 of 51 for safety, making it the 3rd worst, ahead of Indiana (50) and Washington, D.C. (51).
