While other nuclear plants are shutting down due to competition from natural gas, Atlanta-based Southern Company is forging ahead with its planned construction of the plant."
[ED Note: "For those that are wondering, the new nuclear plant will be based on the AP1000 design by Westinghouse Electric Company LLC, a company based in Pittsburgh, PA and a subsidiary of Toshiba."]
I wonder how such a project would improve the economy by creating a whole bunch of jobs to make it happen.
That money - because it's a subsidy - comes from either taxing people, or from borrowing against future tax receipts. So you do see the jobs that are directly created, but you don't see the jobs doing other things that weren't created because the money that people would have spent to create them was taxed away to subsidize solar.
