Sixth Estate On Fraser Insitute

They propose a study; your industry association ponies up the funds.  This seems a fairly common practice among think tank "researchers".  American Enterprise Institute fellow Roger Bate comes to mind.  Here's his pitch letter to Philip Morris for a book talking down the risk factors of cigarette smoking.  PM turned him down but eventually the Tobacco Institute funded it as "What Risk?"--total cost, 50,000 UK pounds.
