About

Good Jobs First is a national resource center promoting accountability in economic development and smart growth for working families. Among the reforms we recommend are clawbacks—whereby governments recoup subsidies from companies that fail to deliver on jobs or other community benefits. Our blog is about “clawing back” in a broader sense: the effort to make economic development once again serve the common good rather than narrow private interests.
