Connecticut's Golden Geese Cash In

New Jersey's Tax Problem is that a few taxpayers make so much money they become golden geese – the State treasury can scarcely get along without them.

It's happening in Connecticut, too, as Jim Gust commented.

Bridgewater Associates headquarters, Westport, Connecticut
Connecticut's golden geese include Ray Dalio, the founder of the world's biggest hedge fund. Last year Bridgwater's chief enjoyed an income of $1.4 billion. Two of his lieutenants each made $250 million.

With immense incomes comes king-size clout. The State of Connecticut has come up with $20 million to discourage Bridgewater Associates from moving out of state.
