June 2004, Sec 2, #16

There's quite a number of trap answers in this one (B,C,E) and I've narrowed it down to two (B,E)...why is E the correct answer as opposed to B?  What kind of assumption question is this?!?!

The key word is OVERALL in the conclusion of the stimulus. If you logically negate E) which can become "a factor harmful to some older local industries requires discouraging other businesses from relocating to that region", then that weakens the argument that those mandated protections help the economy overall.

Answer choice B is wrong because even if most of the local economies are primarily based on industries that are harmed by the protections, the influx of new businesses can still help the economies OVERALL. ie: new job creation
