Parker's novel, Cold Service, an organized crime boss helps his fool of a son-in-law set up shop, just to make his daughter happy, even though it is clear that the boss knows that his son-in-law is a fool and has no respect for him.

IRBs and TIFs are the way cities help stimulate their local businesses. There's sufficient hand-waving, reassurance, and lack of understanding of how these instrumments actually work to allow the most rabid Republican to accept the pork without losing face. The locals get to feel like they're Doing Something To Create Jobs.
