David Neumark, Distinguished Professor of Economics at the University of California,
Irvine, writes, “Existing place-based policies—especially enterprise zones—have generally
failed to provide benefits to the least advantaged. … I propose a new place-based
policy—Rebuilding Communities Job Subsidies, or RCJS—to encourage job and income growth
in areas of economic disadvantage.”
