From Carolina Journal Radio Program No. 786: Politicians who rely on targeted tax incentives to help recruit businesses to North Carolina share a common trait with teenagers who stuff their faces with the first piece of chocolate cake they see.

Coletti explains why the politicians — and teenagers — would benefit from considering alternatives.
