RETHINKING ECONOMICS

Today, the general consensus is that economics as a discipline is in need of a major rethink. In this 5-session course, we will challenge the dominant neoclassical paradigm and explore new perspectives that capture the complexity of current economic reality.  The course will be based on Kate Raworth’s Doughnut Economics. We strongly recommend that participants familiarize themselves with the material before the beginning of classes.

Instructor: Dr. Marty Rowland

    LAND VALUE RETURN AND RECYCLING FOR PROSPERITY, SUSTAINABILITY AND EQUITY

    Public infrastructure has long played a crucial role in the growth and prosperity of our cities. How we raise funds to pay for infrastructure is just as important as how much funding we raise for this purpose. In this 5-session online course, we will examine:

    • The relationship between infrastructure, land use, sustainability, resilience and equity;
    • The difference between taxes and fees;
    • The impact of different infrastructure funding techniques on integrating infrastructure and land use along with their impacts on total and per-capita infrastructure costs, job creation and affordable housing;
    • “Land value return & recycling” as an important, but often-overlooked component of infrastructure funding; and
    •   Opportunities for and impediments to LVRR implementation.

    The instructor Rick Rybeck is the Founder and Director of Just Economics LLC, a Washington DC based consultancy that assists communities in promoting job creation, affordable housing, transportation efficiency and sustainable economic development.
