Stop the politicians before they mess it up

A Professor of Economics from the Univeristy of Memphis says keep the polticians out of choosing winners and losers in business. Don't know this gentlemen but he sure sounds smart to me. He says there is plenty of incentive for entrepreneurs to make money and Memphis should stop the PILOT (payment in lieu of taxes) program where they give away the taxpayers money to a very small number of selected fat cat corporations. These types of breaks are an open invitation to corruption, a waste of time and they divert the politicians from their most important job which is running the government efficiently.
