A look into the battle between Maryland and D.C. to host Washington's football team. And we speak to the newly elected Montgomery County Council President, Nancy Navarro.
Many D.C. residents can list dozens of reasons why they love being in the city. But for publicly-traded companies, the bottom line can take precedence over geography when looking for a new base of operations. This means that jurisdictions use lucrative tax credits to try to give themselves a leg up. Washington, D.C. is considering giving a large consulting firm up to $60 million in tax incentives to keep its headquarters in the District. But do the benefits to the city match the cost? We talk about the proposed Advisory Board Company deal and the impact of corporate tax incentives on economic development in the D.C. area.
