    AOC is a fool, but I think Tucker is right if everybody gets caught up in giving special exemption to corporations, states will just keep bidding down their taxes. Personally, I think we need a federal law against paying of companies opt stay in your state. It might be good for your a state but it hurts the US as a whole.

    Pyrrhic victory mean you win the battle at a very high cost. Example: You have 1000 troops, enemy has 1000 troops. You win the battle by killing or routing all enemy troops but by the same token you lose, lets say 900 troops. That is a 90% loss. A Pyrrhic victory is a borderline stalemate but considered a victory non the less.

    Thank you.

    I don't see that as a victory for them at all. Amazon would pay construction companies to construct buildings, employee people to work, increase pay for truckers that have to go further or out of their way to move product and that all adds up to revenue that EASILY justifies a tax cut.

    Could we not behave with corporate overlords as if we're begging scraps from the master's table? Tax Incentives are just an arms race, until nobody but the common folk's paying taxes anymore. If any level of government tries to provide any bait beyond making sure the workforce and infrastructure are available on their territory, there's true socialism at work: they're trying to bend free market in their location's favor using the tax system they control. I'm glad someone, somewhere, grew a spine.

    Pyrrhus (/ˈpɪrəs/; Ancient Greek: Πύρρος, Pyrrhos; 319/318-272 BC) was a Greek general and statesman of the Hellenistic period.
    a Pyrrhic victory means you sacrifice so much to win the war effort would have been better off if you had retreated

    mmmm, I still don't agree Tim. Corporations like Amazon need to pay their fair share of taxes just like every other citizen has to. People are tired of the corporate welfare system, especially considering that Amazon didn't pay (or paid very little) in federal taxes this past year.
    Plus, Amazon is a shit company to work for. Heard and experienced it myself.

    Pyrrhic came from the "Pyrrhic War". A war fought between the Roman Republic and the kingdom of Epirus. The reason it gained its name was from the king of Epirus, Pyrrhus, who won a victory against the Romans at great cost to his side.

    Pyrrhic Victory doesn't mean you hurt yourself to win, it comes from Pyrrhus of Epirus who lost such a substantial portion of his excellent phalanx troops in a battle he won against Rome that he supposedly remarked, one more such victory and we are finished. I.E. it means a victory whose cost is so great that it loses you the larger his case, he was indeed eventually defeated and forced to leave Italia to return to Greece.

    Here's the thing. While NYC is a stupid place to have a business for no other reason than the state is totally corrupt, and taxes everyone to death, AOC does have a point about why corporations get all these tax breaks but no one else gets those tax breaks.
    Why does Amazon get these 3 billion in tax breaks?
    To this you might say "Amazon is bringing 25K good paying jobs!" Well fine, but if NY has 3 billion dollars to give Amazon for creating 25K jobs, why doesn't NY just use that 3 billion to create those jobs themselves?
    Certainly they have plenty of things that need fixing, their ramshackle subway system for one needs work, plenty of jobs could go to that. I bet 3 billion dollars that would go to Amazon in tax breaks could create much more than 25K jobs, perhaps even 100K jobs.
    Oho! you say, but that is where you are wrong. This is not a tax subsidy, it is a tax break. That means NYC is not paying Amazon 3 billion, just giving them 3 billion in tax cuts on their taxes that they would otherwise have to pay.
    Really? How does that work? If Amazon gets 3 billion in tax cuts, that means people in NY see their taxes have to go UP to make up for the difference. Because NY still has fixed expenses it has to pay to maintain its infrastructure, which Amazon is now using - and not paying for - and that money has to come from somewhere. There is a 3 billion in offset on NY state budget due to those tax cuts that they now have to go after other taxpayers to make up the difference. That is the real fraud of corporate tax breaks, it's basically making everyone else pay the tax bill of corporations.

    I have a great deal of respect for Tim. I can tell he puts a lot of effort into his stories. So I just have some constructive criticism for the end of this video when he talks about Amazon and where they should open their HQ. The issue of their location, cities, suburbs then intertwines social woes. Those issues alone call for an entire video of themselves because they are so good complicated to truly understand without devoting time into researching even the creation of cities and suburbs and the problems of maintaining them. Also the infrastructure creation and maintenance of the infrastructure in both cities and suburbs. Great video by the way 😁👍

You have a train that goes to the city from here and access to several airports within 10+ miles that fly all over world. Imagine bringing high paying jobs there and improving the infrastructure that is barely dsl ready. The downsides would be the push back from locals and you'd have to improve or rebuild the infrastructure.

Yet the new guy gets to pay way less or if any at all. for 10 years and charge higher sales tax in that area. Thats just how it works. Not just in big cities too. I live in a town with 23,000 people and a new walmart came in they gave them a tax incentive for 10 years and a no compete clause for 5 years on the whole road. Are you fucking kidding me a No compete clause. Its getting so bad for current business owners that all they will have is new business in the town because its pissing so many people off.
