Three Ways Bad Public Policy Hurts Missouri
In this February 2013 Show-Me Forum, Policy Analysts David Stokes and Patrick Ishmael detail some of the specific bad public policies that are hurting Missouri. Of particular focus are corporate handouts in the form of development tax incentives, governments lobbying other governments for a larger share of taxpayer money, and Enterprise Zones (plus EEZs). Like all the Show-Me Forums, this event was held in Columbia. On the following day, Stokes and Ishmael reprised this presentation for an audience in the Show-Me Institute’s office in the Central West End of Saint Louis.
