Money Walks: Out of California, Into The South and Southwest

 

In the United States today, interstate migration is becoming a more and more prominent topic. A new book called How Money Walks has used IRS data to put hard numbers to which states are losing and which states are gaining wealth due to interstate migration.

Most of it won't surprise you: the northeast and the rust belt states, along with California, are losing residents at incredibly high rates. Most of the south and southwest is gaining. Texas, Florida, Arizona, and Colorado lead the way in total wealth gained due to migration. Some are surprising, though: Washington State, for example, has been a fairly large gainer. And the outlier in the South is Louisiana.

  1. The only problem I see is the influx of liberals into conservative areas. They won't be happy, want to change things, and then move on.

      Yes, just went to a wedding in Miami and what a change since the 70's. I wouldn't live there unless I was put in jail. Once it took us 2 hours to go 20 miles. The people are rude and service is slower than molasses in January.:)

      Where I live in Alabama we require no building permits other than septic. We have a lot of libs who have left Florida and moved this way. They can't stand the fact we are permit free. Our county population is roughly 24,500. We are called the Free state of Winston. And every one of them that moves here wants to change something about this place.

      They obviously don't have a brain in their head.

  3. Colorado has gone in the toilet with all the Liberal Californians moving in. That is why you see them passing senseless gun laws.

  4. We are seeing the end of freedom and elimination of conservative states. Liberals and progressives are a disease and there seems to be no cure. As the loons flee the states they have destroyed the will do the same to any state into which they move. Colorado was Texas just a few years ago so the direction of Texas will be a sharp turn left. I do not have much hope for America. A new Civil War may slow the liberal/progressive disease but most people are too civilized to really purge America of this cancer. Therefore, until the officials order my assassination I will live as a please. As far as disarming me not while I still live screw the laws and the lawgivers.
