10 Decline of the Mill Industry Textile mills have been closing since the 1970s, and since the late 1990s, the mill shave closed at an astounding rate. Many have relocated production facilities to less developed nations which offer some economic advantage over the American South. In South Carolina, forty-seven mills closed between 1997 and August of 2001 which amounted to the loss of at least 12,220 jobs. (Claire E. Jamieson The University of Tennessee)

20 The federal Historic Tax Credit The federal historic tax credit has been quietly and effectively transforming historic buildings into new uses for more than 30 years. These projects create more and better paying jobs than new construction, because historic preservation is more labor-intensive than new construction. Save places that give communities character and that residents, businesses and tourists flock to. Fuel local economies because developers tend to source their material and labor locally, instead of from faraway factories. Are green. Historic rehabilitation projects essentially recycle existing buildings in existing communities. This keeps development away from farmland and green space, and close to public transportation and other services. Make good economic sense. The historic tax credit program has cost the U.S. Treasury $17.5 billion in its 32-year history, which is more than offset by the $22.3 billion in federal taxes these projects have generated.
