NFL vs Gov Jerry Brown: Who Creates More Jobs?

The National Football League got government approval to create jobs by building AEG's Farmer's Field in Los Angeles. It took a legislative act and governor's signature to remove the redtape set up by government and environmental group. Creating jobs should not require an act of congress (or state legislatures). It goes to show the anti-business environment created by government.

Governor Jerry Brown deserves credit for signing the lesilation, but he also shares blame for denying other businesses the same opportunity. 1000s of businesses don't have the political lobbying power to influence the government. They won't hire people or expand their businesses in California -- they may even move out of the state.

Governor Brown had a large press conference to claim credit for creating the jobs in building the stadium, getting and NFL franchise and the future gameday jobs. But the credit goes to private companies like AEG and the NFL.

    the sad thing though is both did it in this situation and the city will realistically see NO ECONOMIC GAIN from this. the astro dome will cost houston 4 times atleast the cost of building it to demolish it, the debt from the old meadowlands is still on the hands of jersey citezens and the new one is now on their hands too.

    As long as my beloved Los Angeles Rams are returned from those thieving bastards in St. Louis I'm happy.

    Without AEG and the NFL pushing for a stadium and team to come to L.A., the 3,000 plus jobs would not have been created.

    our government has become no better then the mafia of the early 1900's. No business should have to go thru that much red tape.

    Gov Jerry Brown deserves full credit for NOT obstructing the creation of new jobs.
    Furthermore, companies will NOT move out of California if they are making a profit!

    Government is not in the business to create jobs all they can do is over regulate making jobs harder to come by.

    governments create messes. And even in the the NFL and AEG are are only creating transitory or temp jobs the majority of which go away after construction is over. The only thing that can and will create new jobs is manufacturing. bring it home

    True that; but as long as tariffs and top level taxes remain low or non existent, there's o reason for that to happen.

    California sets itself up for destruction all of the time. We hate to send anything there due to all the special regulations nobody else has. So we charge them triple the price.

    If you need political clout to have a business in a state, then that state's regulations need to be changed.
