Description

The City of Dayton Economic Development Office currently employs two unique incentive programs to attract businesses to grow and locate within the city limits. These programs cost the taxpayers significant amounts of money while also providing profits to our local economy in the form of a bolstered tax base for the city government. The goal of the thesis is to compare the two programs using two different cost benefit economic analysis methods and provide a recommendation for increased efficiency to the city based upon the results of the analysis.
