They can't be serious. San Jose does not have mass transit. Amazon should go to Dallas.

"Among Amazon’s requirements: a city that is at least 45 minutes from a large international airport; has access to mass transit; and is near a “population center.” It will give preference to cities that have the potential to attract and retain strong technical talent, and that have a “stable and business-friendly environment.”

San Jose has a 0.8 jobs:people ratio. They are a jobs poor city. They are picking up the housing slack for Palo Alto and Mountain View but not getting the business tax revenue they should be getting.

If Amazon even announces it is moving near the SF Bay Area, rents will begin to double.

Do you really think that they are dumb enough to do that?

No, I don't. What does frost me however is when local politicians in an area which has a critical shortage of affordable housing seem to actually want to make it even worse.




The Housing Trap
You're being set up to spend your life paying off a debt you don't need to take on, for a house that costs far more than it should. The conspirators are all around you, smiling to lure you in, carefully choosing their words and watching your reactions as they push your buttons, anxiously waiting for the moment when you sign the papers that will trap you and guarantee their payoff. Don't be just another victim of the housing market. Use this book to defend your freedom and defeat their schemes. You can win the game, but first you have to learn how to play it.
