Millineals and gen Z can’t afford to live in democrat states anymore. Average housing for south is 150k-200k below the average for north. What can we do to send more top tier talent south? Why aren’t companies building headquarters in Mississippi and promoting houses for everyone?

This can lead to a 100 year shift in the south’s favor if we can continue to show strong affordable housing

Ride through Jackson and let me know when you've found your new corporate HQ.

If you look at demographic trends, MS will be democratic in 25-30 years.

And then all of those Millennials and Gen Zers move to the south, vote for lefty politicians and ruin a good thing we've had growing.

Look at what the transplants to Atlanta have done to Georgia.

I was living in a new subdivision here in Alabama and the last four houses purchased were people from Virginia, Texas, Colorado and Ohio.

Or they will move down here and, like the locusts they are, frick up what we have going with their liberal policies.

I’m all for the Mississippi thing as long as they all go to Jackson. It’s already an African war lord’s dream city.

This is so true for Jackson proper but Clinton and Raymond aren't bad places to build. They are solid places to build if you want good living for execs & white collar/college graduates but the cheaper manual labor force of Jackson. Clinton provides easy access to the Interstate system and unless it's changed drastically in the past 25 years, Raymond is a pretty nice town.

It may be apples to oranges but take a look at companies like Taurus firearms. About 5 years ago they moved from southern Florida to Bainbridge, GA (just outside Atlanta). Outside of the business side of things (tax breaks), the execs love living there. We have a good friend who made that move. He said the execs were shocked how friendly and welcoming their neighbors were. That's how the south lures desirable people. Word of mouth goes a long way.

An interesting line to try to ride

Bring enough business to vault up the state rankings and boost the economy

Risk bringing in too many transplants who vote us out of being a red state this ruining the conservative reputation we have as a state and implanting terrible liberal policies they moved here to escape from

Are they bringing their politics? If so, they can stay where they are. I don’t want them to bring those same bad policies here.

What, exactly, do we "have going"? Shitty public schools? Lack of industry? Huge welfare roles? Persistent poverty?

Holy shite...would be awful if we lost all of that! Not sure if you've noticed, but Red bible belt states pretty much all suck outside of Texas, Georgia, and Florida.

Why would you want transplants from Democratic states stinking up God's country?

Millennials and Gen Z are obsessed with walkable urban living which isn’t abundant in the South.
