The Long and Short Terms of Stimulus Solutions

February 2009
njbiz;2/2/2009, Vol. 22 Issue 5, p12
The author argues that New Jersey Governor Jon S. Corzine's economic stimulus solutions for the state will do nothing to accelerate private-sector job growth. He cites the insufficiency of a one-time grant of $3,000 per employee in a single year to change the hiring plans of companies. He recommends expanding the state's Business Employment Incentive Program. He also supports the implementation of a tax relief and a common sense reform of state regulations.
