Incentives for the Twenty-First Century
Author: Joshua Morris Hurwitz. 2015

Economic developers seek effective incentives that can help grow community prosperity. This paper presents incentives that reduce business costs and have the potential to significantly increase jobs, investment, tax revenues, and consumer spending in innovative, cost-effective ways that also advance community development goals. The incentives chronicled in this paper fall into three groups; one is traditional incentives redefined to make them more effective, another that decrease costs while increasing efficiency, and another that focuses on social development goals.
