A New Brunswick economist does not have a problem with the concept of payroll rebates, something often called corporate welfare.

David Campbell of Jupia Consultants doesn't think it's a big problem saying we need to attract good quality companies but let's make sure we get a good return on our investment.

Campbell thinks we need to a better job by aligning companies that already work in the area of economic development.

He says what happens now is the individual organizations are successful by their own indicators but the overall system is not successful.
