SOUTH CAROLINA HAS NO FAST-GROWING COMPANIES
FITSNews – September 6, 2007 – So Fortune Magazine put out its list of the Top 100 fastest-growing companies in America today, and believe it or not South Carolina didn’t have a single company on the list.
What? Not even one? This is truly stunning when you stop and think about it, people. You’d think South Carolina would be a damn magnet for economic growth considering we have stratospheric unemployment, bottom-of-the-barrel income levels, an anti-competitive tax code that’s every CEO’s worst nightmare, the worst public education system in the Western Hemisphere and a bunch of crooked and illiterate Boss Hogg’s running state government like it was the illegitimate offspring of Soviet Russia and Hazzard County.
Seriously, that sounds like a recipe for success to us! Incidentally, our neighbors in Georgia and North Carolina each had two of the nation’s fastest-growing companies, and Tennessee and Florida each had four of them. Of course, at least two of Tennessee’s probably have something to do with crystal meth, and we really shouldn’t feel too bad about ourselves seeing as Mississippi didn’t have one, either.
