Economics Retrospective

[Water Consumption]

The impulse to build around cars is hard-wired into almost all our funding formulas, institutional norms and culture. This is a result of how our transportation system was designed. Since the Interstate Highway construction era began under President Eisenhower in 1956, US transportation policy has mainly been on autopilot. We shovel billions into new highways through formula grants to state departments of transportation. Other forms of commuting, like sidewalks and buses, compete for the leftover scraps. Biking and walking projects, for example, receive just about 1.5% of federal surface transportation funds. We do not support passenger rail and bus transit in ways that make those modes of transportation competitive with driving. The average American has few practical alternatives to hopping into a car every time they need to go anywhere. But the big new spending package from the Biden Administration represents a potentially historic departure from our car-centric approach to infrastructure. The Administration's proposal, which will cost more than $2 trillion, would boost funding for public transit pretty dramatically, adding more than $10 billion per year — roughly doubling annual federal transit spending. US transit ridership has hovered at around 5% of commuting trips for a long time, meaning we have lots of room for improvement. In Canada, for example, more than 12% of the population gets to work by bus or train. A dramatic expansion in transit options for Americans could have cascading benefits. Places with higher transit ridership tend to have fewer traffic deaths (which cost the United States $463 billion a year on average), for one. Transit spending also supports better job access for low-income people. Finally, transit investments help prioritize more dense, walkable development.

Since at least the 1960s, macroeconomics has been characterized by further integration as to micro-based modeling of sectors, including rationality of players, efficient use of market information, and imperfect competition Hedegaard Before his death on February 6, George P.

I got the tip because I had worked on a series of stories right before that about sexual assault in the NCAA and the parent had read that and reached out to me. From there it was just a matter of trying to build sources, gather public records and police reports and disciplinary records and try and figure out what was happening. We found that there was a number of football players that had been accused of sexual assault, and the school hadn’t done anything about it. As we reported more and more, we learned that this was not just an athletics issue either, it was the whole university systematically mishandling and ignoring allegations of sexual assault.  We published a big story about rape allegations against Derrius Guice in August and followed that with what was our signature story about the problems across the whole school. Then LSU hired an outside law firm to conduct a review of everything we’d reported. The review came out in March and it’s been kind of non-stop ever since that. We learned about Les Miles, we broke that news, and people have been fired and have resigned and been suspended since. Now it’s at the legislature where a bunch of lawmakers have been holding hearings and calling LSU officials to testify. That’s kind of where we are now, the story that never ends.   Do you see this type of reporting becoming a bigger focus amongst student journalists and journalism schools? I do think so, especially for journalists who are in college. I think people, just in the past few years, have started to really see college sports in a different light, partly because of all the abuse that’s been uncovered at different universities. And the way college sports has become such a lucrative industry, only for the coaches and the administrators and not for the athletes. I think it’s more important than ever possibly that sports journalists have that sort of training and have that eye for looking out for abuse and injustice instead of just focusing on the team. I hope it does become more mainstream [for] sports journalists especially to start doing watchdog-type work as well. What message or advice would you pass on to young journalists hoping to learn more and break into this style of journalism? Well I think it starts with acknowledging that there is an injustice in college sports that underlies the whole enterprise. It has a foundation of injustice.
