The Catch 22 of Growth | Bacon’s Rebellion

A great new post over at Bacon’s Rebellion looking at the problem of tax abatements and tax incentives for the purposes of local economic development. Randy Salzman wraps the issue of tax abatements around the required rise in property values required to cover the losses realized in tax abatements. This, in turn, directly affects the funding of school systems, roads and highways, parks and recreation facilities, etc., etc.
