There is some truth to the above policy prescription, but it is overstated (to put it mildly). Consider the top 10 states where the natives aren't so restless:
- New York
82.1% of the people currently residing in New York State were born there. The same is true for 73.8% of residents living in Minnesota. Contrast that with where I live. Only 46.9% of my fellow Coloradoans were born in-state. Keep that in mind the next time someone suggests lowering taxes in order to keep brains from leaving. Boondoggles come in all shapes and sizes.
