How so? We make offer all kinds of carrots to businesses for other things. Maple Leaf, the Stadium, the Aerotropolis, etc.

Government works in concert with business all the time. Sometimes what's best for the citizens of this city isn't best for the businesses, so the municipal government helps meet them in the middle with a little incentive.

The only difference here is that we're being straight-up mercenary about it instead of more subtle and diplomatic.

Instead of "well, we're going to provide infrastructure subsidies and tax-breaks and we've got some road-widening and highway-access plans to help coax the businesses into this area" we're just being straighforward: half a mill if you want to set up a proper grocery store downtown.
