Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I can see that JG labor at the community level could easily be directed to projects that benefit existing economic incumbents as it would be them or their representatives who decide what projects are worthy of that labor. But were such labor be directed to improving the lives of the elderly, providing quality child care including feeding, education and health care, and providing public sponsored transportation to those without access to vehicles through public transit, providing recreational opportunities, as was done by the US CCC in the '30s it would be a net benefit. But the challenge would be getting a JG enacted and the price would likely be that it primarily serve the interests of existing economic incumbents.
