Here is a look at what a government investment of $10,000 accomplishes in different sectors:
* Roads and transportation projects: 4.4 to 7.8 jobs created
* Commercial structures: 9.6 to 13.4 jobs created
* Business incubators: 46.3 to 69.4 jobs created
Business incubators create jobs at an expense as low as $144 per job — almost 10 times less than road and transportation projects, which typically cost more than $1,200.
