Eggheads: Cities, don't woo rich Amazon with sweetheart HQ deals

ggalt

I'd rather have Amazon's HQ2 than a sports team any day. Revenue from a sports team is only during a limited time of the year, unlike the employees at a company, and at ~50,000 heads, even the largest of tax breaks is likely to be recouped (as well as all of the other jobs that will come to support Amazon or simply to be close to them).

I will also note that these profs are all from cities that either didn't make the cut or are unlikely to win.
