Return of RHIC Round-up

While this story hasn't seemed to reach the national news, via the New York Times (why not, folks?), Newsday has been all over our story recently:
Newsday also has a story about a talk at the lab yesterday that I missed: "BNL's Economic Impact Goes Beyond LI", January 20, 2006. The talk was given by Long Island Association chief economist Pearl Kamer. I can only quote the article since I can't seem to find the report at the moment:
When Brookhaven National Laboratory managed to save one of its key nuclear physics experiments last week by using private financing to fill in federal budget gaps, the effect wasn't limited to the lab itself.

In broader terms, the lab's economic impact statewide is far more significant. Between 1993 and 2003, it added up to 79,000 jobs, $9.2 billion and a host of new technologies that cannot be entirely quantified, according to a report released Thursday by Long Island Association chief economist Pearl Kamer.

The report, which has been two years in the making, shows that the lab is one of the top five high-technology employers on the Island, with 2,750 employees. But what with visiting scientists, the development and marketing of new inventions, and the ripple effect of new technology created in the lab, it's really responsible for tens of thousands of additional, secondary jobs for the state, in industries such as construction, retail and business services, the report said.

And in the future the lab's economic effects could be even greater, with another $5.6 billion and 91,000 jobs statewide by 2014, Kamer's report predicts. Much of the trickle-down effect occurs on the Island, she said, as workers spend money and the economy grows.
