The White House released the Council of Economic Advisers report on the impact of opportunity zones this week.
Black Enterprise reported:
“A White House study shows Opportunity Zones have generated $75 billion in private investment across the U.S. in the last two years.
Opportunity Zones are part of an investment program created by the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017, allowing for certain investments in lower-income areas to have tax advantages. One of the benefits for investors is the ability to defer capital gains taxes.” [https://bit.ly/3huKJE4]
During Tuesday’s edition of #RolandMartinUnfiltered, Economist Dr. William Spriggs deconstructed the White House’s claims that billions were brought into under severed communities.
Critics contend, the biggest beneficiaries of Trump’s opportunity zones were billionaire financiers and believe that only a small number of the most attractive zones received the bulk of the money.
