State-line incentive war appears in The New York Times

The incentive war between Kansas and Missouri — Kansas is winning — made it into the pages of The New York Times. Reporter and heir A.G. Sulzberger talks to the chief executive of AMC Entertainment, who sounds almost embarrassed by the fat offer to relocate the company’s headquarters from Missouri to Kansas. “In all candor, it’s unusual and a little disconcerting,” Gerry Lopez, the executive, says. Lopez was photographed in his office, making the “What are you going to do?” gesture with his hands.

The takeaway from Sulzberger’s piece is that Kansas and Missouri are playing a destructive game, and everyone knows it.
