A huge recent example -- Obama's bailouts to the banks and auto companies.
Publicly funded industrial parks -- whether by federal, state or local funding.
Grants given by states, counties, or municipalities to corporations to build plants in the state or local area, obstensibly to create jobs. FACT: These create only a few jobs, and they often turn away the local people and bring in favored people from elsewhere who consume the jobs and salaries and also bring their families to consume the local public services. The local people who pay the taxes get screwed.
