What Am I Working On


As has become my custom every three months, here's what I'm working on now at work. I won't repeat anything from last time that I happen to still be working on, and for confidentiality's sake I have to blur some of the details for some of these studies.

Estimating the various economic benefits associated with a multi-state trail outside a major southern city and with its intended expansion.

Estimating the employment impact of the construction phase of a major infrastructure project.

Estimating the local economic and fiscal impact of a series of food market fairs.

Creating a spreadsheet model that simulates the effect on tax bases and tax revenues of various packages of changes on tax rates for a major northeastern city.
