Kansas City Royals Downtown Stadium Promises EPIC Jobs & Billions Worth Of Income

Actually and objectively . . .

Despite so many amateur economists online . . . The promise of more Kansas City jobs is substantial and worthy of public subsidy . . . Sadly, the Royals campaign is so secretive and timid that there's nobody out there driving this point home.

Releasing economic info tidbits on a Friday night was a mistake and gives our beloved Crossroads resistance the upper-hand when, in fact, most small biz in the hipster district aren't hiring half as many people as a stadium could. 

Sorry . . . But the niche Crossroads economy has only supported a small sect of part-time workers and owners WHEREAS bold municipal construction projects power economies across the world . . . Even when, tragically, they tear down your favorite tattoo shop. 

Yes . . . We're playing devil's advocate just a bit if only because online skeptics seem to be dominating the conversation by way of cherry-picked crib notes from right-wing think tanks which have always sought the demise of Kansas City, Missouri amid their desperate attempts to achieve upper-class tax breaks. 

And so . . .

Here's the rosy economic predictions that won't help so many people who just want to sit at home and complain on the Internets . . . Check-it:

"According to a Friday morning presentation, the new stadium is estimated to create about 26,000 jobs and generate an estimated $1.8 billion in income over the construction period.

"Within the first year of operation, 5,400 jobs are expected to be supported with a projection of $300 million in labor income from these new jobs. After the first year, 8,400 jobs are expected to be created on an annual basis with $440 million in labor income."
