Description

State and local governments give billions of dollars each year to private companies in the hopes of creating jobs, but these deals often deliver fewer jobs than expected at a large cost to the public treasury. In this session, you’ll learn how companies play cities and states against one another to get bigger subsidies, how to analyze the costs of subsidy deals and the studies used to justify them, and the resources available to investigate projects.
