Investment Incentives

Non-market benefits used to influence the behavior of an economic actor. Investment incentives can range widely in form and may be, for example, a requirement on purchasers to buy goods or services at above-market prices; full or partial exemptions or deferrals of tax charges; and the freedom from having to comply with certain laws and regulations.
