Improving State and Local Government Economic Development Strategies: The Role of Transparency and Tax Incentives

Grant Year: 2019

Nathan Jensen will examine the role of targeted tax incentives in state and local government economic development strategies. He will create a database of state and local business-tax incentive programs and assess whether mandates requiring state and local governments to disclose the costs of incentive programs lead public officials to revise their development strategies. The project’s findings will appear in a series of papers.
