Happy 60th Birthday, Interstate Highway System! You Look Awful | Wired
Aarian Marshall at Wired writes "Happy 60th Birthday, Interstate Highway System! You Look Awful." The author discusses my work with Matt Kahn:
In 2011, transportation economists Matthew Kahn and David Levinson laid out a kind of radical idea—what if the country stopped focusing on building new highway stuff, and got down to fixing what it already has? In the long run, this would save some serious dough: For every $1 in gas tax revenue spent on your maintenance, the government would save between $4 and $10 on future repairs.
