Last week’s CI CyberNews CyberPoll asked readers if they thought that a $5000 tax credit would spur job creation. The majority (63.6%) answered no, while 21.2% answered yes and 15.2% chose the “not right away” option.

Comments included:

“While a nice perk, companies do not hire based on one-time incentives, but rather on a long-term outlook.” -- Janelle Baranowski, Pacific Industrial Development Corp.

“$5000 won't pay a person's salary if there is no work for them to do.”

“Stability is the # need. A real dollar & no more games to help the banksters.”

“No. This isn’t the right incentive. Credit markets are still too tight. There is not enough demand for purchases yet, and a large fraction of small businesses are still in a credit crunch. (see: http://smallbiztrends.com/2010/02/small-business-cash-flow-problems-still-not-declining.html). Something needs to be done to loosen the credit markets.” -- Chris Pilko, PilkoTech

“Job creation can only result from an increase in demand for goods and services, not a one-time handout of cash.”

“It’s going to take more than tax credits to spur job creation.”
