The Center For Economic Accountability Interview

Each year, the US government gives billions of dollars to companies that only boost their corporate welfare. In 2019, New York City handed $2.8 billion in tax breaks. That’s more money spent on tax breaks than on the city’s fire departments and jails.

The Center for Economic Accountability is bringing transparency, accountability, and reform to state and local economic development subsidies and incentives in the United States.

Find out how the Center for Economic Accountability tries to encourage the government to create free-market policies.
