gre argument 237题目：
The following appeared as part of an article in a local Beauville newspaper.
"According to a government report, last year(5) the city of Dillton reduced its corporate tax rate by 15 percent; at the same time, it began offering relocation grants and favorable rates on city utilities to any company that would relocate to Dillton. Within 18 months, two manufacturing companies moved to Dillton, where they employ a total of 300 people(1,2,3). Therefore, the fastest way(6) for Beauville to stimulate economic development and hence reduce unemployment is to provide tax incentives and other financial inducements that encourage private companies(7) to relocate here(4)."
(1)The author unfairly assumes that Dillton’s current prosperity, if any, results from the policies implemented last year.
(2)The fact that two manufacturing companies moved to Dillton and employ 300 people is insignificant evidence to show that Dillton are experiencing prosperity.
(3)Without more information about Dillton's economic conditions and employment level both before and after the incentives were established it is impossible to assess whether those incentives had a positive or negative impact—or any impact at all—on Dillton's overall economy.
(4)Granted that the policies are responsible for the prosperity of Dillton, we cannot ensure that Beauville could experience the same prosperity through providing similar incentives.
(5)The author fails to substantiate the assumption that during the last 18 months all conditions upon which the effectiveness of the policies depends have remained unchanged.
(6)The arguer ignores other possible methods that may improve Beauville’s economy more efficiently.
(7)Granted such incentives are indeed necessary, the author fails to illustrate why we should target on private companies.
