re: Why do so many people on here badmouth New Orleans? - DandyPimp

re: JBE: "one of the most significant economic development announcements in Louisiana history" - DandyPimp

re: JBE: "one of the most significant economic development announcements in Louisiana history" - DandyPimp
I am excited about DXC and the jobs that they will bring, however the key for this announcement is that they got a major employer to say yes. That makes recruiting the next company that much easier. ...

re: Chances of NOLA getting new Amazon HQ - DandyPimp
There is no shot for New Orleans to win this project, however i would not be surprised if it is named a finalist. New Orleans has probably one of the top economic developers in the country in Michael Hecht with GNO Inc. He will put together a strong pitch. ...

re: I'm starting to sour on NOLA... - DandyPimp
I was not talking about population per se, more about "momentum" and the physical aspects of the city. The CBD has seen a ton of multi-family & hospitality development, which have created the potential for a great live, work, play environment. I see momentum slowing and a general pessimism in t...
