Corrupted US-economists network, part 16: The Tobacco Industry training the economists

Overview of previous posts here

Training the economists

Field lobbyist Michael F. Brozek knew why some economists did poorly:
Therefore, the industry would not just tell the economists what they had to say, but would train them better.
Thomas Pogue

This passage (and a few others in the memorandum) clearly indicate the industry did prepare the industry-sponsored witnesses. Again, this implies the economists were not useful idiots being recruited without them realizing themselves (O&M = PR-firm Ogilvy and Mather)
Cotton Mather Lindsay

Again, this is not normal academic behavior.
