We Beg to Disagree. Incentives to Industry do Work!
In January, a story written by Arthur E. Foulkes of the American Institute for Economic Research (www.aier.org) was picked up by Scripps Howard News Service and was published in several U.S. daily newspapers, including the Birmingham Post Herald. I read the story with interest since the headline read "No Evidence that Economic Development Grants (incentives) Work." The story was not unlike others written over the years, most notably one in Time Magazine in the late 1990s that centered on the evils of "Corporate Welfare."
