Attracting Business Without Giving Away the Store

Governing magazine has a story (“Attracting Business Without Giving Away the Store“) on accountability in how states give out tax breaks to attract businesses. The story is based on a study (“Evidence Counts: Evaluating State Tax Incentives for Jobs and Growth“) by the Pew Center on the States.

“Accountability” has been a buzzword in state government for years. Apparently, politicians have been much more interested in asking questions about state agencies (like universities) than about the tax breaks they give to the kinds of businesses that produce large donors.
