Show-Me Institute’s Patrick Tuohey had some thoughts on the potential of St. Louis building a major league soccer stadium on the dime of the taxpayer.

Tuohey said there are more pressing things we need to work on in the city and better things to put our money towards than a stadium.

Tuohey points out that the research in St. Louis shows that incentives to bring companies and developers to the area doesn’t work.
