Now, if the levels of government can do this, along with this program and things like NYPA, then you could see the state becoming more competitive in not only attracting businesses, but also keeping businesses and seeing more start ups here. This is another reason why I think the other levels of government in the state can still play a part in this by seeing how they can be effective without too many layers. That can follow up things like StartUP NY, because then the companies can see that the govenrments are making an effort to keep them and to do it in a way that benefits the everyone.

Raleigh (the city, not even the metro) is gaining 100,000 people, on average, per decade. Buffalo is down 200k since 1950 and other cities like Rochester and Syracuse are also down significantly.
You clearly have no idea what you're talking about. Buffalo and Rochester's populations have stabilized. Ohh... you're still stuck on municpal population, which completely ignores that most people in the two cities just move 5 miles away into the suburbs.



Right-wing anti-tax propaganda. Buffalo has gained millenials since the recession and has a positive inflow of young folks. Oooooops!

If you give freebies for 10 years, I honestly wonder
1) how many people you drive out because their taxes go up
2) how many businesses pocket that money over 9 years and run before it costs them anything

Not to say you are wrong. But can you cite the data you got this from?
