Review for Center for the Study of Economics, Philadelphia, PA, USA
I am mayor and past council president of a borough in southeastern Pennsylvania. The Center For The Study Of Economics helped our borough GREATLY (and at no expense to us) over the past 6 years. They completed an initial study for us to evaluate the feasibility of Land Value Tax in our community. The results were that it seemed like a real no brainer for us. Then political control changed hands and we were not able to act immediately as I and several others had wished. However, as the political winds changed again last year we were able to begin implementation of land value tax in our borough and plan to further expand it this coming year. The folks at CSE did a wonderful, professional job with outreach and presentation to the community (and to some of our legislators) and helped lead our borough back into financial sustainability.
