Voting with Our Feet, Part 5: Willisms Looks at State Migration Patterns

Filed under: Economy,Taxes & Government — Tom @ 6:43 pm

The Willisms post is awesome (as usual). Thank goodness he looked at all state taxes and population moves, so I didn’t have to (and never would have gotten around to it anyway).

Go there already. It’s not too tough to guess where the migration is to, and from, and why.

  1. George Gilder summed it up years ago. “Taxes don’t redistribute wealth, they redistribute taxpayers.”

    In our case, when the opportunity came to profit from a move from one high-tax state to another, it was less repressive gun laws which was the clincher. Still a vote with our feet, and one other bloggers have been known to make.
