The Fallacy of 'Winning' Industry and of 'Losing' it

Abstract:
Eastern North Carolina has several large Marine bases, and few people realize the extent of the payroll at Camp Lejeune, Cherry Point, Fort Bragg, and others. Many towns house employees of these bases, like the 700 people in Pamlico County working at Cherry point. This accounts for the livelihood of approximately 3,000 of Pamlico County's families, a significant percentage of the scant 9,850 population count.
