    In our annual state business climate rankings, Georgia builds on it strengths to stage a Peach State Three-peat.
    Is FDI Still Booming? On balance it is, writes Andreas Dressler, and the US is a much more welcoming recipient of that investment than ever before. Plus, Barry Matherly explores the tools available to help companies evaluate the merits of reshoring.
    One tool is the annual Location Matters report from KPMG and the Tax Foundation. In an exclusive for Site Selection, KPMG's Ulrich Schmidt describes why one size does not fit all when it comes to tax schemes, in Of This You Can Be Certain.
    Business climate rankings are one time When 'You're So Predictable' Is a Good Thing, writes Editor in Chief Mark Arend.

  We learned last week of the longest 4-mm. LED video screen in the US, installed by SNA during renovations at Salesforce's expanding HQ in San Francisco. "Simply put, the media wall is a spectacular addition to our office space," said Chase Mattison, program manager for Salesforce's global real estate operations team. It reminded us of our former downstairs neighbor NanoLumens here in Peachtree Corners, Ga., which also competes in this lucrative space, and whose HQ move we documented in January 2012. This year they're Georgia's fastest-growing company, and No. 267 on the 2015 ranking of the INC 5000.
