i'll wait to hear how J. Morris weighs in on how NYC doesn't have to rely on subsidies to attract new businesses and foster economic growth.

John Morris

Seems like all mayors everywhere do this stuff. Bloomburg is partly getting busted because it seems like it isn't needed. The west side stadium racket blew up on him because there is so much obvious demand for that land and the subsidies for development of luxury residential in the city are being questioned for the same reason.

The macro statistics on NY's economy speak for themselves. It's got a record low unemployment rate and as far as I know, a record number of major corporate headquarters.

As a whole, Bloomburg has been a better mayor than most. The main thing he has done is open up huge areas of the city to mixed use residential development which should have been done 30-40 years ago.
