I urge everyone to read this study from the East-West Gateway Council of Governments about the ludicrous economic development policies that the St. Louis area has been pursuing during the past decades. The Post-Dispatch had a major article about it over the weekend. People at the Show-Me Institute, including me, have been raising issues like this for some time, but it is great to see EWG's proof in the pudding. I will return to this issue after I have had time to read the entire study.
