It's clear the study overestimates the negative and underestimates the positive to skew the result toward an agenda," Hammon said. Sam Addy, said the chief problem for the state's economy is the loss of consumer demand because of the departure of between 40,000 to 80,000 workers earning between $15,000 and $35,000 per year.
The study acknowledged some costs and benefits were harder to calculate than others and the potential economic impact has some widely varying estimates. The study found that Alabama's gross domestic product the amount of goods and services produced would see a decline between $2.3 billion to $10.8 billion.
