Ken Poole Co-Authors Piece on ED for NCSL Magazine

February 11, 2014

CREC’s Ken Poole, Ph. D., along with Senior Research Fellow Catherine Renault, Ph.D., authored a piece this month for the National Conference of State Legislatures (NSCL) monthly State Legislatures Magazine. The article, “Prove It!: States offer many incentives to promote economic development, yet seldom evaluate their effectiveness”, build on work that CREC is currently engaged in with the Pew Charitable Trusts. The project, the Business Incentives Policy and Practice Initiative runs into late 2015.

The article can be read on NCSL’s website, here: http://www.ncsl.org/research/labor-and-employment/prove-it.aspx
