Marron Fellow Alon Levy is quoted in an article by Governing columnist Alex Marshall. Levy outlines the way forward for building efficient, cost-effective infrastructure in the US.
The urbanist and scholar Alon Levy says Americans need to get over their apparent reluctance to look at how other countries do things — that we should imitate, not innovate. "The US needs to understand that the path to a future with better American transportation lies not in America's past, but in Europe and East Asia's present," Levy wrote on [their] blog. The history, he wrote, is "one of American insularity and stagnation, to which the solution is to adapt technologies that work elsewhere."
