Economic Boon… OR Boondoggle?
August 25 @ 8:00 pm - 8:30 pmFree
Featuring Dr. Silvia Secchi, Natural Resources Economist
Using case studies, Dr. Secchi will discuss how it is not uncommon for companies to hire consultants to prepare economic reports that are flattering to their proposals. Rarely are these studies peer reviewed or fully substantiated. Many include fine print disclaimers by the consultant such as: “Any third parties reading the report should be aware that the report is subject to limitations, and the scope of the report was not designed for use or reliance by third parties for investment purposes or any other purpose.”
