    Great quote ” it’s easy to find
    consulting firms willing to produce glowing “economic impact studies” . For example: Economic Research Associates (ERA) told Arlington, Texas, that spending $325 million on a new stadium for
    billionaire oil baron Jerry Jones’s Dallas Cowboys would generate $238
    million a year in economic activity. Critics immediately pointed out
    that this merely totaled up all spending that would take place in and
    around the stadium. Hidden deep in the report was the more meaningful
    estimate that Arlington would see just $1.8 million a year in new tax
    revenues while spending $20 million a year on stadium subsidies.”
