Don't Waste Money Unless It's On Me

I had high hopes for this story about government economic development projects when it popped up in my inbox today. I thought "this will point out some great ways to save money in cash-strapped Illinois." It turns out that the study is from a group that would replace transfer payments to corporations (which are generally bad) with tranfer payments to public works and other busy-body approved projects that don't promote suburban sprawl.

Idea for Governor Blago: Embrace the spirit of the study by ending all the business subsidy programs, fire the employees of the implementing agencies, close their office buildings down and sell them. I won't hold my breath.
