Hollywood's conservativism

Recommended Posts

Two excellent, informative, and unusual articles by none other than the Mises Institute in Vienna (one of the foremost economic think-tanks in the world).

This is not to say that the economic thought of Ludwig von Mises is correct or that I myself adhere to it (I do not). But the institute is a source for reliable analysis. This can be agreed upon, even if one feels their conclusions always-too-strongly favor free-market theories in public policy-planning.

Either way, you'll nonetheless find these two briefs enjoyable reading.

One wouldn't appear, but the article that discussed state incentives to bring movie makers to their locations, interested me insofar as Michigan not long ago discontinued offering tax incentives to movie makers, the claim by (now soon former governor) Rick Snyder that the incentives didn't generate the  "make-up" revenue it was believed would result.  In fact, it nearly ruined neighboring( to me) Allen Park, MI, when a company, under the impression they would build a huge studio in the city, was able to buy up a HUGE block of property at a SONG, then scrapped the idea of building their studio.  The property was then abandoned, with no taxes(reduced or otherwise) being paid by the owners, thus calling for ownership of property being seized by the city, and now merely being an overgrowth farm.
