Transportation Transformations

How Highway Conversions Can Pave the Way for More Inclusive and Resilient Places

Friday, Mar 1, 2024. 10:00 AM – 11:15 AM MST

The creation of the automobile transportation system in the United States has contributed to many of today’s pressing issues, including racial and economic segregation, increased greenhouse gas emissions, and a lack of resilience to climate shocks and stresses. Join this free webinar to hear from experts and explore promising examples of how communities have converted highway infrastructure to create welcoming, people-centered environments while supporting equitable outcomes, environmental resilience, and real estate project success.


Land Value Tax: A Better Tax and Way to Solve the Housing Affordability Crisis?

Wednesday, March 20, 2024 noon MST, on-line and in person at:

Room 400, Jordan Student Success Building (JSSB), MSU Denver

890 Auraria Parkway, Denver, Colorado

Milton Friedman called it “the least bad tax”, Paul Krugman called it “the right approach to finance growth”, and the Chief Economist of Redfin called it “the tax policy that can fix housing”. So what is a land value tax, and why is it so rarely implemented despite broad support from economists across the political spectrum? What economic incentives do standard property taxes create and how can we reshape those incentives to create a property tax system that is both more efficient and more equitable, while also increasing housing production?

Seminar or webinar is presented by Luke Teater who is an independent policy economist specializing in housing and land use issues. Luke was one of the lead authors of Proposition 123, which passed in 2022 creating new financing tools for the production of affordable housing in Colorado. In addition to supporting the state’s implementation of this initiative he is currently leading the development of new data tools to map the regulatory and financial barriers to housing production across Colorado. Prior to founding Thrive Economics in late 2021, Luke was Chief Economist and Deputy Director in Governor Polis’s Office of State Planning and Budgeting.
