It was the 4 years of Corzine that caused this. How can Christie possibly turn this ship around in only 2.5 yrs? We have to give him another term.

*disclaimer: this ONLY applies to NJ. Nationwide, the exact opposite is true.

This is great...hopefully, President Obama can make this happen at the national level. The sooner we can become Greece and Spain, the better. Those countries are living the dream.

doubt it was signficantly different before Corzine. i know a few small business owners who live in NJ but prefer to run their business in PA or upstate NY because NJ's commercial real estate is too expensive and labor cost too high. this thins down their margins so they prefer neighboring states.

CA is 40th and NJ is 41st???

Something not right with this survey or perhaps the label is a bit misleading.

With all of CA's troubles and business leaving the state it seems inconsistent that it has a better rank than NJ.

Keep raising those taxes, keep giving out those sweetheart deals - look to California to see where NJ is heading.

While I might agree with it's conclusion, I don't agree with it's methodology, it seems like complete garbage.

How exactly does a state drop 18 places in Infrastructure/Transportation in a year? Unless the apocalypse hit while I wasn't paying attention, I'm pretty sure it's all about the same as last year, and probably a bit less crowded with gas prices.

They should air that in the "NJ Comeback" commercials that we hear daily all over.
