What Should the U.S. Do about High-Speed Rail? A Conversation with Noah SmithRSVP
Please join the Transportation and Land-Use program on May 21 at 1:00 p.m. EDT as Bloomberg’s Noah Smith and Fellow Alon Levy discuss their contrasting analyses of high-speed rail (HSR) in the United States. Both Smith (whose article spawned this webinar) and Levy (who responded to Smith) have written about the potential benefits and drawbacks of an HSR program.
In addition to the discussion, the Transportation and Land-Use program will debut its HSR-costs database, which details key characteristics and costs of HSR programs across the globe and serves as a logical extension of their Transit Costs Project database. Please join the Transportation and Land-Use team if you’re curious about HSR or how much it might cost to link San Francisco and Los Angeles, Dallas and Houston, or New York and D.C.
