John Mozena, president of the Center for Economic Accountability joins the show to discuss 'economic development incentives' - the tax breaks and giveaways targeted at specific businesses, industries and sports stadiums in an effort to promote jobs. We discuss why these programs fail so often, who the worst offenders are, and why they're politically popular anyways.
