The name of the company that is leaving, hundreds of small businesses,” JCN President Alfredo Ortiz told FOX Business. Which people haven’t heard about is also moving.” “As a result, economies in low-tax countries thrive, while those in high-tax countries shrink.”

“Texas remains number one because of the unparalleled competitive advantages we offer: no corporate or individual income taxes, a predictable regulatory climate, and a young, growing and skilled workforce,” Eze told FOX Business. “We look forward to more major economic announcements this year as Texas remains the nation’s economic engine.”


Looking ahead, Ortiz expects companies moving their global headquarters to develop into a larger direction, with Georgia, Iowa, Arizona, and South Dakota expected to benefit due to “free market policies” as well as Texas and Virginia.

“Policy makers should study and emulate pro-business policies such as tax cuts and deregulation that firms are implementing to boost economic growth and living standards,” Ortiz added.

Ortiz’s comments come as strategists at Bank of America Global Research have raised the odds of an economic downturn to 40% in 2023, with gross domestic product — the broadest measure of goods and services produced in a country — slowing to nearly zero by the second half. . Next year.

More than 60% of CEOs expect a recession in the next 12 to 18 months, according to a survey of CEOs and other CEOs by the Conference Board, a business research firm.
