As if our job losses, lack of economic freedom, and poor education system were not enough, United Van Lines (a major moving company) has produced a report showing that New Mexico is the only state in the west seeing a significant outflow of people.

The top-five inbound states of 2012 were:

Not surprisingly, none of the five “outbound states” are Right to Work while three of the five “inbound” are.

Are they discussing any dramatic pro-economic-growth reforms that will get New Mexico out of the doldrums?
