The Zero Sum Jobs Game

Kudos to former Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm. Finally, a politician (at least a former one) who makes the obvious point: local governments who give tax breaks to bring jobs to their locales don’t create jobs, they just move jobs from one state to another and in the process destroy the infrastructure that actually creates jobs (education, etc.).

    That’s what annoys me the most about the Texas jobs “miracle.” Texas’s policies didn’t create jobs. They just pulled them from other places.
