It seems to me that the uber liberals who typicall comment here are always
saying that businesses hate Utah for one reason or another.Now, the
DN is reporting that businesses like Utah, and consider it the "Wall
Street" of the west. Hmmmm.....I think that the DN is correct, along with
Forbes, and the other business groups that like Utah and have pointed out that
it is attractive to businesses.
The photograph of TRAX on Main Street is eerily ironic. One would think that the
thoroughfare of a city portrayed as a financial center would be bustling with
shoppers and workers. Only two or three human beings are visible, in the
distance, in this ghost town photo. TRAX tends to reduce rather than enhance
shopping and pedestrian traffic. We'll see in coming months whether
UTA's TRAX grand opening hoopla proves to be hype or reality for North
Temple's dying commercial traffic.
Didn't the mayor of SLC state recently that they could not take any more
belt-tightening? Apparently it's been good for Utah... considering all the
praise and attention it is getting.
The article was speaking more on the state as a whole. Rather than just Salt
Lake City. Maybe they could clarify that in the title. Since Adobe and some of
these larger businesses are located in Utah County and not Salt Lake City.Interesting that we're not reading about these companies flocking
to California or New York, home to high taxes in the name of "fairness",
yet Utah with lower taxes is enjoying a faster growth rate.Just
Nice to see the article headline was changed. And referring to the article, I
wish our nation's leftist leadership would open up their eyes to states
such as Utah, with pro-business policies, and implement those as well to help
the sluggish economy.
I agree with DN Subscriber 2: I clicked on the article expecting to see some
negative reports about poor financial dealings in Utah, since the headline said,
"notoriety." An editor might want to change the headline to match the
positive vibe of the article.On a positive note, I am glad to see
that Utah is doing well and is well-respected.
Well done Salt Lake City-- I think.I agree with the story, but NOT
the headline:The headline reads "Salt Lake City gaining
notoriety in financial circles"Notoriety means the same as:
disrepute, infamy, dishonor, unsavory reputation, bad name, ill repute.Perhaps the headline writer meant to use something like what the story
reports:Acclaim, as in approval, praise, commendation, acclamation,
approbation, applause, compliments.Headlines are not written by the
authors of the stories, so someone else messed this one up.
