How many people live in Alaska?
Last Name First Name (12 hours ago)
Alaska is probably more usefull for America in times of War, being an easy access route to Russia. Thats probably why we'd keep it no matter how bad it got.

I went to college in Alaska. I wish I could have stayed up there, but even with a Computer Science degree, I couldn't find a decent job. So I ended up moving to the SF Bay Area and got a job in Silicon Valley. The state is simply too dependent on oil and tourism.

pretty sure logistics aren't great there either

Republicans ruin everything they touch. Last two Republican presidents ruined the country. The two Democrats fixed it and the moron masses elect another republican lol. They are fake business people masquerading as experts on economy. You have to be a greedy businessperson to be a Republican and they exemplify this.

One word... California
Renato Amboss (23 hours ago)
i love this preposterous myth. California is not a bad place to do business. in fact most people would make the exact opposite argument and say it's the best place to do business. it's expensive because the demand is really high because it's really really lucrative, not because of logistical/environmental challenges and oil dependency. unless your goal is to be an oil well technician, California has arguably the highest standard of living on earth. perfect weather for tourism or logistics, great location for ports, land travel, and space travel too. the tech sector is the strongest on earth meaning the public/private designed infrastructure is really well done. their budget has been balanced back to the point where they are the 5th largest economy on earth as a state. more concentrated new economic value being produced in the bay area than any other megacity on the planet. i love your channel, but that is a ridiculous opinion grounded upon misconception by any observable metric.

California? You mean the state with the 5th largest economy in the world?
CommandantNOVA (3 days ago)
bad bait dude. California may be overregulated, but it still has a large labor pool, natural resources, and active ports

Randal Colling, california is ranked 6th in business growth. The bottom 9 out of 10 are red states.
トラックリスト (5 days ago)
low quality bait to be honest.
Randal Colling (5 days ago)
I agree.
Mister Mood (5 days ago)
it ranks near the bottom, but by no means the worst, compared to Alaska: California is Way easier to do business in, as you have larger labor pool to draw business from you have access to the continental united states, and the fact the state is the largest market given the fact its the most populous state
Randal Colling (5 days ago)
Mood......Taxifornia is the worst of the worst. Face reality.
