At today’s meeting of the Wichita city council, economic development incentives were a topic of discussion.
In his remarks, Wichita Mayor Carl Brewer ignores evidence that targeted economic development incentives — the type being considered — don’t produce economic growth for the community. He also expresses his disdain for free market concepts and those who believe in them.
It was a bad day for economic freedom in Wichita. Not a single council member voted in favor of economic freedom over corporate welfare.
