New Jersey Monthly sheds light on the never ending competition between New Jersey and New York in attracting each other's businesses and commercial control over Hudson River. "It seems that whenever a major company threatens to pack its bags, politicians in either state will trip over themselves to find the resources to persuade it to stay," the magazine reports.

The article finds that "this economic tug-of-war diminishes both states."
