Nevada ‘Won’ Tesla but the Taxpayers Lost

0

Nevada will pay Tesla $100,000 per job per year for twenty years. Each job will pay about $45,000 per year. What kind of economic development is this? Greg LeRoy of GoodJobsFirst.org and I talk about this, Walmart, Boeing, Cabela’s, and others as government economic development officials across the country vie for fewer and bigger companies. Does this make sense? Are taxpayers being burdened with no-win tax subsidies for big corporations? Isn’t there a better way?

The Tim Danahey Show started in July, 2010 at internet station Castle Rock Radio. It started as a one-day-per week endeavor and quickly grew to five days per week. The show discusses economics, government, social issues, history, and non-fiction books in a magazine format featuring in-depth conversations with guests. Politics and inflammatory conversations are discouraged as they are divisive and counter-productive. Instead, the show seeks under-reported topics and delves into facts, different perspectives, and ramifications of each perspective.
