Connecticut and Missouri Dialog on Their Analyses and Results
June 18, 2012
2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
REMI (Regional Economic Models, Inc.) is pleased to announce a one hour guest presentation by current REMI users.
Each year states give out billions of dollars in tax incentives, often without accountability. Who receives the incentives and how is the money spent? To what extent are these tax incentives generating economic growth? Two states, Connecticut and Missouri, have recently been highlighted in the Pew Center on the States report, “Evidence Counts: Evaluating State Tax Incentives for Jobs and Growth” as leading the way in evaluating their states’ tax incentive programs. Join us as Alan Spell and Tony Brite of the Missouri Economic Research and Information Center (MERIC) and Dr. Stan McMillen formerly with the Connecticut Department of Economic and Community Development (CT DECD) discuss their state tax incentive research methodologies and findings.
The session will take place on Monday, June 18th, 2012 at 2 pm EDT and will be approximately one hour in length and will be offered at no charge via the WebEx Internet Conferencing. Advanced registration is required. If you would like to attend, please register by replying to this e-mail, contacting us by phone at 413-549-1169 or click here to register online.
