Why state tax cuts do not = Jobs (Volume 123, Issue 8)

A former Wisconsin Secretary of Development under Gov. Lee Dreyfus (R) has a great op-ed in the Milwaukee Journal saying what (unfortunately) can’t be said enough times: 

“The things that create the conditions that lead to the
growth of good jobs are a skilled, educated, stable and dedicated
workforce, a substantial group of highly educated and motivated
entrepreneurs, above-average infrastructure and government services, a
high overall quality of life and a sufficient pool of investment
capital. Low tax rates, lax regulations and enfeebled employees come in
way down the list of factors that create a positive business
environment.”

And here’s a funny photo from our friends at Demos.
