CONGESTION PRICING IS COMING TO NEW YORK CITY – IS IT FAIR? CAN IT WORK?

How will you be affected by New York’s new congestion pricing scheme? Join our November 9th interactive webinar.

The congestion pricing policy is now in the fast lane. Although not expected to go into effect before late 2023, many are already questioning the wisdom behind it.  Others are touting its potential for ushering in a new era of urban sustainability.

The panel presentations will be followed by a community Q&A.

    IS IT LAWFUL TO PAY TAXES TO CAESAR? HOW TO END THE US FISCAL IMPASSE?


    In his two most recent HGSSS talks, Dr. Perry described current Federal Reserve policies as unprecedented but apparently required by competing political dynamics which make it impossible for Congress either to raise taxes or to cut spending. This latest talk presents a deep analysis of the theories, the history, and the politics of Federal taxation and spending, and offers specifics for the implementation of a Georgist alternative to resolve the current fiscal impasse.

    The instructor, Dr. W. E. Perry, has long been engaged in developing the tools of semantic analysis to help better understand determinism, causality, and the emergence of new properties from a variety of data sources.
