Five Points to Guide Investment Policy in the Post-COVID Era
Chapter Host: Washington, D.C | October 14, 2020 | 1 hour
Alan Pisarski recently published in the Reason Foundation newsletter a set of five points to guide public policy in transportation post pandemic. He will discuss that work in our meeting and expand on it, particularly focusing on the impacts of the major trend toward Working at Home that comes out of the COVID impacts but that now has a life of its own. He sees the impacts as far-reaching, not just for work commuting, but for all other local and long distance travel.
