Amazon caves

Now that Amazon is opening its NYC facility even though the city withdrew all its incentives will local officials in Arlington, Virginia try to renegotiate the package they offered?

I’m not sure if what happened with New York tells us that all of these corporate shake-downs of local government for tax incentives is just a bluff, or if NYC is a uniquely appealing place for a company to have a facility so there is no lesson for other smaller places.
