Dr. Elad Granot, dean of the Dauch College of Business and Economics, was featured on a WEWS-TV 5 Cleveland news segment with Jonathan Walsh. Dr. Granot spoke about Ohio's tax-free weekend as a part of the On Your Side investigation that looked into whether the tax holiday really saves people money. Granot called the tax-free weekend a political stunt.
"The data shows that for the state it's pretty much a wash," Granot said. "They're not losing any revenue because most of the consumers will walk into stores and buy stuff that's covered by the tax break but then buy a lot more things that are not."
