USA Today cited a recent Mackinac Center study showing that just one-third of jobs promised by the Michigan Economic Development Corp. have come to fruition.

The article discussed the frenzy among various states to create more and more subsidy programs that take money from taxpayers and transfer it to particular companies making promises, particularly in the race to gain so-called green jobs.

The story also ran in the Arizona Republic, and was cited by a Booth Newspapers columnist.
