This series examines Kentucky's economic development program's failure to create jobs and alleviate poverty across the state, and especially in the poorest areas. Incentives given to businesses for more than 14 years did not result in the contractually agreed-upon number of new jobs. The state program was loosely monitored and shrouded in secrecy. Funds allocated for high tech job training were diverted to creation of malls and industrial parks that remained mostly vacant. Overall, after 14 years, Kentucky's poverty ranking was not improved by the development programs.
