I read an article from the economist.

But helping workers by boosting productivity must not be confused with self-defeating attempts to protect them—as happened the last time they had the upper hand, in the 1970s. Repatriating supply chains, as Mr Biden would, will inhibit competition and grind down living standards. 『Cranking up corporate taxes too far will reduce the incentive for firms to invest』. For central banks to lose their inflation-fighting credibility would be a disaster. Just ask the workers who bore the brunt of efforts to tame prices in the 1980s.

Would it be more proper to write “invest in”?
Cranking up corporate taxes too far will reduce the incentive for firms to invest in.
Because the word “the incentive” in which firms invest.
Moreover, the verb “invest” has some of the patterns like these.
• invest in something.
• invest something(usually money/effort) in something.
