Tesla Incentives

Hosted by  • 

The electric car maker Tesla is shopping for a location to build a battery plant. And California officials are working to put together a lucrative incentives package to secure the Tesla plant. We discuss the ongoing “arms race” of incentives going on between the states to lure businesses, and what it’s doing for the taxpayers’ bottom line.
