Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
In the past, I think the flight from the northeast may have been started by capital flight.  Labor and big-government liberalism was strongest in the northeast and upper midwest, so companies fled those areas for the labor-hostile, ultra-conservative south.  As jobs moved, so did everything else.

Regulatory competition between states is a major issue in the US, something that causes everyone headaches but which can't be solved given the nature of federalism.
