AMAZON - Nixes NYC Headquarters

"Political, business dynamics prompt ‘stunning reversal’ on Amazon NYC headquarters" PBS NewsHour 2/14/2019


SUMMARY:  Amazon abruptly announced Thursday that it will not build a headquarters in New York, after some local politicians expressed strong opposition toward the company’s plan.  The “stunning reversal” is a major blow to the politicians who helped broker the deal, including Gov. Andrew Cuomo and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio.  Judy Woodruff talks to J. David Goodman of The New York Times.
