FBEI Creates Military Economic Impact Study

Monday, October 8, 2012


The San Diego Military Advisory Council (SDMAC) commissioned PLNU’s Fermanian Business & Economic Institute to create its 2012 San Diego Military Economic Impact Study. PLNU’s chief economist, Dr. Lynn Reaser, was the primary author of the report, which highlights the vital role the military plays in San Diego’s economy through avenues such as employment, retiree and veteran benefits, contracts, grants, purchasing, and tourism. “The study receives wide dissemination among the senior military leadership of the Navy and Marine Corps, as well as elected and appointed government officials both locally and in the Washington area. SDMAC also considers it to be an invaluable tool for private sector corporate leadership, especially in light of the ongoing discussions concerning the defense budget,” according to SDMAC.
