Abstract

New York State is spending billions of dollars on economic development programs without reaping significant public benefits. Too often the State is subsidizing sprawl, pollution, and poverty level employment. An examination of the State’s two largest economic development programs, the industrial development agencies and the New York Power Authority, reveals numerous problems – but also ready solutions that will save the taxpayers money and lead to real, sustainable growth.
