Review for Center for the Study of Economics, Philadelphia, PA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The Center for the Study of Economics provides essential, science-based analysis of the role public finance plays on the social and economic health of communities. The civic leaders of every town and city would benefit by embracing the policy proposals CSE supports. CSE's research focuses on the central role tax policy plays in our property markets. During my nearly forty year career in the real estate and banking sector working to put together financial structures that addressed the need for decent, affordable housing and community revitalization, it became clear to me that the overtaxation of property improvements and the undertaxation of the value of land parcels was a central reason the problems existed in the first place.

Review for Center for the Study of Economics, Philadelphia, PA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The director and his small team perform an extremely valuable public service. The Center has worked with civic and governmental leaders of cities, towns and boroughs all across the United States to identify the best means of raising public revenue consistent with sustainable economic growth. There is no other organization with which I am familiar that fully grasps the distinct impact of policies of taxation on the investment decisions of residents and property owners. Every community in the United States would benefit by adopting the recommendations put forward by the Center in its research papers and and case studies.
