Georgia is a state where we measure ourselves by how other people think of us.
Gov. Nathan Deal, for example, often mentions that Georgia was rated as “the number one state for business” by cable channel CNBC and a real estate trade publication.
He does this, of course, to send the message that those media rankings illustrate what a great job he has done as governor.
There were two new rankings last week that compared Georgia to other states.
One of them focused on the issue of using public funds to build new stadiums for professional sports teams.
