Kansas is ranked 6th among the states in the yearly ranking by Pollina Corporate, a national real estate and economic development firm. The study ranks states on over 30 factors, including taxes, human resources, right-to-work legislation, energy costs, infrastructure spending, work comp, economic development incentives and economic development efforts.
Although Kansas' ranking was pretty widely reported by the media, the comments of company executive Brent Pollina were not. They are worth mentioning here:
"In recent years, we have lost millions of the nation's manufacturing, technology and high-wage service jobs, and this trend is escalating. The federal budget deficit, trade deficits, low interest rates, family debt and inadequate educational systems are and will continue to have a negative impact on the U.S. economic, political and military strength in the 21st Century.
"We are deluding ourselves if we believe that we have not been impacted already, both socially and economically, and that our government, along with American ingenuity and tenacity, will correct for any losses. This report details how many state governments have the resources, but not the will, to keep Americans employed in high paying 21st century jobs."
The top 10 states in rank order in the study are:
