“Misleading” stem cell/economics study gets ripped by Michigan State students and political science professor

Proponents of unrestricted research on human embryos (including the Michigan Citizens for Stem Cell Research and Cures) paid $24,000 for Wayne State Professor Allen Goodman to write a "misleading," "unfair" and "arbitrary" paper about the supposed economic impact of passing Proposal 2.

The paper's flaws were easily recognized by a class of Michigan State students. Michigan State Professor Michael Craw (who isn’t opposed to embryonic stem cell research) noted the study’s numerous errors by pointing out that the study provides no justification for its results and could be used to teach students how not to conduct research.
