The systemic problem NYC is facing is the problem.

The fact NYC's taxes are so ridiculous that businesses have to negotiate with the government to work out better deals (corruption??) is a recipe for example.

That doesn't mean Amazon isn't in fault either. The fact that they seem to want to pay zero taxes and only selling point is that they create jobs goes too far too. But IMO, that was on Bloomberg and Deblasio for negotiating such a deal like that in the first place (again, a system that forces corruption).

The systemic tax and regulatory problems is what caused this mess

But a company like Amazon..dont any city got to negotiate with them and bribe them anyway. No matter what the city.

isnt that kind of a thing. I mean it was a big Willy Wonkaish competition.

kind of a thing big companies like this do

Sometimes it works out for the city
Sometimes it  not worth it or hurts the city

I think it's a good thing that New York didn't get them.  NY is already loaded with people.  Another 25k is a massive influx & then factor potential family members in top of that.   50k - 100k extra people adjusting for number of potential family members. 

I'd to see how realtors & owners would jack housing up if Amazon came to NY.

The real problem is the system that allows corporations to pit states against each other to get the best deal. It gives corporations a way to punish states for wanting to pay for infrastructure and enforce health regulations and so forth.
