Topic: subsidize

Unfortunately, it’s all too conventional


Commentary

Dr. Ed Shadid
Among the highest priority for a city government should be preparing that city for the 21st century. There is little room for error; certainly not on the order of hundreds of millions of dollars. While Oklahoma City is poised to grow in many ways, a preoccupation with 20th-century economic development strategies — particularly massive public investment in convention center expansion with large-scale subsidies for an accompanying hotel — are akin to the gambler risking more than one’s family can afford when the odds are heavily stacked against success.
