Jobs. Jobs. Jobs. That is the four letter word on the mind of every lawmaker worth his salt. But while most officials agree that more should be done to help spur job creation, not everyone agrees on the best way to do it.
For some, the best approach for creating jobs is by keeping taxes low and controlling the growth of government to stimulate private sector growth. For others, the best job creation strategy is through increased government spending and public sector-driven demand.
To find out which approach has yielded the best results so far, Reason.tv put together a short video, “More Taxes or More Jobs? California Shows We Can’t Have Both,” documenting the Golden State’s recent attempts to create jobs.
