If low taxes are what brings business to a state, why is Nevada's economy so bad?
We have no state income tax, no corporate tax, very low property tax... If conservatives are right, than our economy should be booming!

Most of the state is empty with nothing to go to. Theres not much more to Nevada than Las Vegas.

Because low taxes do NOT attract businesses. There's much more to it than that. If that were the only consideration, then ALL businesses would locate in the same city, wouldn't they. I looked. I can't find the city/state with the lowest total business taxes.

You may not have noticed but much of Nevada is unpopulated and Vegas , Laughlin and Reno count on Gaming for a great deal of their income and jobs. Gaming requires a public with expendable income.

Because nevada economy is built on tourism And we had the president of the US stand up in a speech and tell people NOT to spend thier money going on vacation in nevada. Economies built on tourism, always suffer in a recession.
