Amazon was greedy

Amazon paid no federal tax for 2017 and 2018 but they still wanted money from New York in return for new jobs. I am all for new jobs but oppose massive corporate greed.

Read this whole thread. The bottom line is nobody knows how this would have worked out. Krugman writes “The question then is whether you should invest large sums in tax breaks so that you get to roll the dice on positive versus negative externalities. Doesn’t sound like great policy to me “
