Illinois Ranks Among Worst Five States for Business

-By Warner Todd Huston

California beat Illinois, but not by a whole lot in the worst of the worst category. has posted its list of best/worst states to do business in and Illinois ranks 48 of our fifty. Only New York and then California are worse.

“California’s enduring place of perpetual decline continues in this year’s ranking,” the website’s rankers note.

Illinois did no better last year, either. It was stuck at 48th worst then, as well. But showing how bad Illinois is doing, the Land of Lincoln did not appear in the bottom five in either 2009 or 2010. Since then we’ve gotten worse not better in the estimation of those that created this list.

Thanks Pat Quinn, Illinois Democrats, and the feckless Illinois GOP.
