Where's the moral thinking of Amazon executives?

Reader spreads the word about public incentives.

I live in New Jersey and while visiting Sarasota for a high school reunion, I saw your excellent editorial regarding Amazon's HQ2.

I agree with all your points.

As a long-time resident of New Jersey, a terrible tax state, I have been critical of tax incentives for businesses threatening to leave New Jersey for other parts of the country.

Although I like Amazon and can understand its desire to get as many tax breaks as possible, I agree with your point about executives' moral thinking about these incentives.

I am bringing three copies of your editorial back to New Jersey. It would be nice if this editorial could get a larger audience — that is something it deserves.
