Was Salazar Machine Company a “Winner?” | James Pat Guerréro


Immokalee, FL: The Federal, State and Collier County provided taxpayer funds in the form of a grant to incentivize Salazar Machine Company and called it economic stimulus. This is not an example of a free market economy in Collier County, and it may not last. Although it is tempting to call this particular incentivization an example of picking winners and losers, the idea of economic incentives by grants from the U.S. Department of Agriculture does exactly that because it is doctrinally planned economic development. The Federal, State, and local Collier County governments should not be involved in “creating jobs.” It should allow the opportunity for the free market to operate by reducing fees, regulation and interference to allow the private sector do what it does best: create jobs and investment opportunities.
