We commissioned The Stern Group to produce a groundbreaking report of the effects on the U.S. economy of lifting unilateral food and medical sanctions on Cuba in order to educate members of Congress on the matter — resulting in a successful vote. The Stern Group doggedly pursued difficult-to- find information and, under an extremely tight deadline, published an objective, accessible, meticulously documented analysis that helped move the debate at a critical time. We received absolutely professional attention with an unexpected dose of warmth and grace — what we’ve come to view as the hallmark of Dr. Stern’s style.

We have distributed over 1200 copies of The Stern Group’s study of the North American Free Trade Agreement to our members, Congress, the media and the public since August and have just had it reprinted. It has served as the basis for our testimony before House Ways and Means and the ITC as well as for our thirty-one state studies. The U.S. Chamber and the U.S. Alliance for NAFTA are also using it extensively.
