1. I agree. It is a necessary asset for entrepreneurial creation.
2. My only question is efficiency. Of 13,000 NEW jobs created, what was cost of operations of Ben Franklin Technology Center since 1983? What is average salary? Has the center created more value than what has been directed to it in public funds.

Better to get some infrastructure construction jobs going--real work for real people.
These inflated estimates of job-creation never pan out. Maybe half the number will eventually come to be created; and they will be taken by foreign visa immigrants.

Wrong. The "estimates" you sneer at are real jobs created for over 20 years of the program's history. Get the facts. And why on earth do you think high paid well educated people are less "real" than laborers?
