ABSTRACT
The article presents the opinion of experts about whether jobs are created by tax credits and other business incentives in Oregon. Tim Duy, senior director of Oregon Economic Forum, says that jobs are created by these incentives. According to Chuck Sheketoff, Executive Director, Oregon Center for Public Policy, jobs are not created by tax incentives. Rachel Shimshak says that these incentives create jobs only in partnership with other policies, like the renewable energy standard.
