If you like nice weather and don't like living in the bigger cities, it's a pretty nice place to live. Besides, Charlotte and/or Atlanta are driveable from anywhere, and Greenville and Charleston are awesome.

The weather and location is irrelevant; stirs was implying that it's the ideal place to do business because of its tax rates. If that were true, it would be a huge economy instead of a poo hole nobody ever thinks about.

In an effort to get out quickly, some sellers are slashing prices. A technology entrepreneur's 5,382-square-foot restored Provençal farmhouse on about 15 acres of land is listed at $3.8 million, a 10% discount to the market value


PRICES ARE CRAZY!!! EVERYTHING MUST GO!!!!

yes, this is comparable to the situation in the US. I definitely have seen Obama advocating a 75% tax on people making over a million... I mean, that's like a cornerstone of his fiscal cliff plan, right?

Most of the states GDP roughly compares with the population of that state. South Carolina is about where it should be. Population in the mid 20's and GDP in the mid 20's. North Carolina is 10th in pop, and 10th in GDP.

Good gosh guys.

It was an example. I just off the cuff picked a southern state where lots of companies relocate as an example of how money from around the world will seek a safe place.

Man, tis the season to be anal around here.

You guys google, snopes, wikipedia to your hearts content.
