As state and local governments expand efforts to promote economic development, one increasingly popular technique for encouraging investment is the use of state and local tax cuts and tax incentives to lure businesses. In the EPI study Rethinking Growth Strategies, author Robert G. Lynch analyzes the existing research to show that state and local tax cuts and tax incentives largely fail to draw firms to a particular location, substantially improve local economic development, or stimulate job creation in a cost-effective manner. A more successful approach to economic growth may involve raising taxes in order to better provide essential public services such as schools, education, and health care.
