Mississippi Eminent Domain Gone Bad
"In 2000, Mississippi went hog wild in outbidding neighboring states for the Nissan factory by offering a fat package of close to $300 million in subsidies and tax breaks. The deal included $80 million from the state to train Nissan's new workers. Also included was a pledge to "quick-take" the property of three families and give it to Nissan so it could build a parking lot and access road for the factory."
