The dark side of corporate welfare

The Oklahoman reports today on an economic developement project that went sour in Hinton, Oklahoma: $8 million on a plant that remains unused, a promoter under investigation, and Hinton Economic Development Authority members and "community leaders" accused of conspiracy.

What are the possibilities that the people of Hinton will now be open to offering more economic freedom as an incentive to developement and abolishing the Hinton Economic Development Authority and the opportunities for abuse that go along with it?
