Peter Enrich on Economic Development Tax Incentives

By ublaw


Our guest today is Peter Enrich, Professor of Law at Northeastern University?s School of Law, where his teaching and research focus on state and local fiscal policy. In 2006, Enrich argued a pathbreaking case before the U.S. Supreme Court, Daimler-Chrysler v. Cuno, in which he argued that the Constitution?s dormant commerce clause prohibits tax breaks widely used by state and local governments to compete for economic development in a ?race to the bottom.? The Supreme Court rejected the claim on procedural grounds.

Professor Enrich visited Buffalo to participate in the conference The High Road Runs Through the City: Advocating for Economic Justice at the Local Level, organized by UB Law Professors Sara Faherty, Sam Magavern, and Martha McCluskey, and hosted by UB?s Baldy Center on Law and Social Policy, Cornell University ILR School, and the Coalition for Economic Justice. At the conference, he spoke on the panel ?Who Benefits: State and Local Subsidy Reform,? moderated by James Magavern, of Magavern, Magavern & Grimm, and joined by panelists Susan Jones of George Washington Law School, Greg LeRoy of Good Jobs First; Sadaf Khatri of NYC Jobs with Justice; and Trudi Renwick of the Fiscal Policy Institute. For more information on that event, see Join us for a conversation with Professor Enrich and UB Law students Tara Stahl and Suha Abilmona.
