Zimbalist on Economic Research Associates

"[The Dallas Cowboys economic impact report by Economic Research
Associates] gives every appearance of being the standard puffery that you
get in these types of economic impact reports. They use an inappropriate
methodology, faulty assumptions and come up with projections that are
meaningless." --Andrew Zimbalist, Dallas Morning News, 8/14/2004

This is, of course, the same Economic Research Associates that later went on to be hired by New York City to do its economic-impact studies for the proposed Mets and Yankees stadiums. We'd be curious what Andy thinks of the methodology now.

It sure must grate you that your her Zimbalist has written an op-ed to the New York Times defending this plan. Of course, you won't print this message nor the op-ed written by Andy. But then you give every crackpot with a tinfoil hat comment space as long as they're saying what appears to be something in opposition.

Actually, if you were a careful reader of this blog you would have already found the link to ZimbalistĀ“s Op-Ed.

And you will find comments from readers like you. Probably these readers ARE you.
