There's obviously something going on in these economic impact analyses that are not based on economics. Part of this is an ethical shortcoming among practitioners, as well as promoters eager to show "big" numbers for their projects. The other part is a lack of knowledge among practitioners. These deficiencies motivate the next sections.
