Cameron Gordon, the John J. Marchi Visiting Scholar in Public Policy, will discuss “Is the fare fair?: Transportation Equity in New York City,” as part of the John J. Marchi Lecture Series, on Monday, Mar. 30 in the Campus Center (Building 1C) Green Dolphin Lounge from 5:00pm to 6:00pm. How much should you pay to cross the Verrazano Bridge? Should the MTA hike the $2 fare? Should wealthier New Yorkers pay more for transportation than the less well off? Cameron Gordon will discuss these questions within the framework of ethics and economic analysis. His talk will demonstrate that there is nothing very fair at all about the way the costs of transportation are distributed in New York City.
Dr. Cameron Gordon is Senior Lecturer in Finance at the University of Canberra (Australia). His research interests include transportation policy, government privatization, and comparative public policy.
