It’s been more than a year since New Jersey’s biggest corporate tax subsidy programs were allowed to expire, giving the state an opportunity to rethink such massive corporate giveaways with dubious return on investment. This discussion focused on the current state of economic development programs in New Jersey as well as new ideas that prioritize equity, communities, and workers over failed trickle-down ideology.

This virtual panel featured: Greg LeRoy, Executive Director of Good Jobs First; Tim Sullivan, CEO of the New Jersey Economic Development Authority; Sheila Reynertson, Senior Policy Analyst at NJPP; and was moderated by Julia Sass Rubin, NJPP Trustee and Professor at Rutgers University.
