LinkedIn: Miami Among Fastest Growing Cities Nationwide For New Businesses

Miami is now one of the fastest growing cities in America for new businesses, according to a study from LinkedIn.

According to LinkedIn’s analysis, new company formation in the Miami area surged 45% during the pandemic.

Miami now ranks second nationwide for new company formation. All three of the top cities are in Florida, with Orlando barely nudging out Miami for the top spot by 1%.

For the study, LinkedIn looked at company formation rates between the pre-pandemic (July 2018 to July 2019) and mid-pandemic (July 2020 to July 2021) periods to calculate each city’s growth rate.

Business formation dates were based on timelines listed in the profiles of LinkedIn members.

The top industries for new companies formed in Miami were entertainment, finance, and manufacturing, LinkedIn said.

You mean policies like the reduction in home prices that could be claimed on taxes that the Trump administration initiated?

Yeah, you’re one of those blind Trump butt-lickers because you don’t see any flaw in him. If you don’t believe what I wrote, check out on the internet the cap the Trump administration put on the cost of homes for tax purposes.

So let’s get ready to … let’s see, things that are happening now in SF, Minneapolis, NYC and Chicago …
Robbery on Walmart and other stores as long as is less than 900$
No bail out if you’re poor
BLM and Antifa destroying properties for a very important cause “ social justice “
Defunded police with high crime
State Taxes
Government mandates
Because those are, among other the reasons, why people are moving here …
And I’m not a Trump Puppet… 🤗

The policy from 2016-2020 was fantastic.
For the first time in well over 50 years, the USA was energy independent.
Tree huggers should love that carbon emissions were reduced even as the economy grew.
Inflation didnt grow more than wage growth

Sadly, the size of Federal Govt never shrank as much as it should have. And Federal Gov’t spending kept growing.

Not perfect, but mostly great policy that always prioritized the American workers and the people who needed wage growth the most.

The Biden administration promises to “work to end cash bail and reform our pretrial system, recognizing the harm these processes cause, particularly for Black women and families.” So-called “bail reform” in places like California and New York City has produced repeat offenders like Charles Barry, who has been arrested 139 times (including on six felonies) but continually gets released. “Bail reform, it’s lit!” Barry said before praising “the Democrats! The Democrats know me and the Republicans fear me. You can’t touch me! I can’t be stopped!” In Chicago, bail reform led to at least 32 people being released, only to be arrested for committing violent crimes later. How this improves the safety of women, the report does not say.🤗

If I could erase one thing in our nation’s history it would be the 16th amendment. Taxing income is by far the dumbest amendment ever added to our great constitution. When you tax something you get less of it. Taxing income lessens industry. Less industry is less wealth. Less wealth means less worth. Less worth means poorer. Income tax is stupid. In fact, I’d argue to do away with federal abilities to tax. Taxation power should be run by the states exclusively. Let the states pay a pro rata rate to the federal government based on their population size to run the only 4 things the feds should ever do. 1)Coin currency. 2)Arbitrate between the states. 3) Defend the border 4) Usps. Get the feds the heck out of our lives.🤗

You know, I wouldn’t mind paying such taxes if the government actually spent money on actual capital and infrastructure, and not use it as money to reward their “friends” like public sector unions, corrupt lowest-bidder contractors who don’t get any work done, and virus research in China.

You wonder why P3s, charter schools, etc. have become so popular.

Tax something and you less of it (Tobacco consumption, alchohol consumption, Labor, Investment, etc)

Subsidize something and you more of it (Bogus for profit colleges, bridges and highways to nowhere, Wuhan Research, sitting at home instead of working, etc)

Florida has 22mm people currently. California has twice as many, New York has 20. There is a lot of available growth available to both Texas and Florida as superior governance draws entrepreneurs from other states. Whatever complaints we may have about governance here, the problems are nothing like what is going on in Seattle. Even Amazon is retreating to the suburbs because of the hostility of their city council.

Bring your job, company, sugar daddy and whatever you can! Salaries here are low and services pretty bad. If you have money you will be fine like pretty much anywhere, if you need to build a career, this is not a great place. This city is flashy and pretty uneducated.

If you cant build a career in Miami, your problems DEFINITELY are not because of Miami.

Miami could do well in certain areas of tech, namely software. South Florida isn’t as suited to tech manufacturing (semiconductors, tech hardware etc) as Texas, but that’s ok. A lot of tech is now oriented toward entertainment. Also, both states have superior tax and regulatory environments compared to California, New York, Illinois, Washington State, and many other states.

South Florida did tech manufacturing in the 60s to 90s in little places called Broward and Palm Beach Counties with IBM and Motorola. People came right out high school and learned on the job.
