Minnesota: Justified Confidence?

June 17, 2013 at 3:27 pm

We are about to embark on an interesting test in applied history. It will be interesting to see whether Minnesota becomes a case of justified confidence or unjustified smugness.

“A lot of the tax debate in this session demonstrated little if any concern that taxation can negatively affect in-migration of talent and capital to the state. To some extent, a certain cocksureness is completely understandable given Minnesota’s proud economic history. The key word, of course, is ‘history.’ It’s appropriate to question whether the same playbook still works today as well in today’s demographically challenged, hyper-mobile, globally competitive, margin-squeezing environment. It’s also legitimate to recognize that in delivering the critical public goods and services, the economy needs to thrive, the tax price tag does matter, and that public investments can and do underperform.”
