Amazon and Atlanta: The business and politics of Georgia’s HQ2 bid

Atlanta survived the first cut in Amazon’s HQ2 sweepstakes and is one of 20 finalists in the company’s search for a second headquarters.

HQ2 could bring a $5 billion campus and as many as 50,000 jobs to the region in which it lands.

How far will Georgia go to land HQ2? Will the drama with Delta and a “religious liberty adoption bill” hurt Atlanta’s chances in the end? What does it look like for a city to “woo” a company in an Olympic-like bid?

Explore the business and politics of Georgia’s bid for Amazon’s HQ2 in Atlanta with Politically Georgia host Greg Bluestein and guest Scott Trubey.
