Tax incentives—often used to attract or retain existing businesses—aren’t always the best way to stimulate economic growth.

In this article for Cascade, a publication of the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia's Community Development Studies and Education Department, Kauffman Foundation Policy Director Jason Wiens and researchers Emily Fetsch and Chris Jackson, discuss how the current practice of incentive programs might be improved and offer alternative strategies that support the creation and growth of new businesses that have proven to create jobs.

Today, women remain underrepresented among the ranks of entrepreneurs. In fact, they are half as likely as men to start a business.

This discrepancy is not just a gender  or a fairness issue—it is an issue of economic growth.

By addressing the gender gap in entrepreneurship, policymakers can unleash a wealth of ingenuity and creativity that can spark a new era of entrepreneur-led growth in America.
