Best Places for Business

Every year economist Ronald Pollina studies the economic environment of all 50 states and culls the information into a list of the “Top 10 Pro-Business States.” Pollina has just completed his 2009 study and the winners are:

1. Virginia

2. Utah

3. North Carolina

4. Wyoming

5. South Carolina

6. South Dakota

7. Kansas

8. Georgia

9. Florida

10. Nebraska

Readers please note that all 10 states have a critical component in common — they all protect workers with Right to Work laws.
