When communities spend scarce funds attracting jobs that don't exist, everyone loses. The taxpayer, schools, local and private sector employers are out millions of dollars and have nothing to show for it. Are there any alternatives?
This holiday season, I want us to stop. I want us to continue the gratitude of the day before. I want us to sleep in and maybe take a walk into town later to see what the local shops have for sale. Even if it costs a bit more.
