In the News: Dennis Coates, George LaNoue and Don Norris

Dennis Coates (Economics) was quoted in a Tampa Bay Times article: "How much do the Tampa Bay Rays boost the economy?" Dr. Coates argues that much of the money spent inside sports stadiums actually flows out of the cities where they are located.

"Causing discrimination rather than ending it," a commentary piece in the Washington Times, cited testimony by George LaNoue before the Civil Rights Commission on federal contracting practices.

Donald F. Norris commented in a Baltimore Sun article about the possible return of former mayor Sheila Dixon to politics. "I would be listening for some indication that she is repentant for what happened," he said.
