AT&T, T-Mobile merger will create jobs? Prove it, FCC says

- A study by David Neumark, economics professor and Center for Economics & Public Policy director, is featured in PC Magazine October 13, 2011
From PC Magazine:
AT&T argued that the merger will create "a far more robust national wireless infrastructure," which will have "ripple effects," including the creation of platforms for innovation, which will create jobs. It did acknowledge, however, that "some jobs serving redundant functions would be eliminated to reduce costs." Last month, AT&T rival Sprint released a report that slammed AT&T's job creation claims. The carrier partnered with David Neumark, director of the Center for Economics and Public Policy at the University of California at Irvine, and found AT&T's promises of job creation to be "completely unfounded."
