Reschovsky discusses public, school finance

Economist Andrew Reschovsky is participating in two conferences in June.

Reschovsky is presenting at a June 17-20 conference on "The Economic Crisis and Cities" in Paris, France. The event is the 42nd annual Conference of the International Fellows in Urban Studies sponsored by Johns Hopkins University's Institute for Policy Studies and the IAU Ile-de-France. Reschovsky will address public finance challenges U.S. cities face in the plenary session he organized and he will participate in a roundtable discussion about reinventing urban planning.

 At the Lincoln Institute of Land Policy in Massachusetts, where Reschovsky is a visiting fellow, he co-organized the June 8 conference "Economic Perspectives on School Funding and the Property Tax" and gave introductory remarks.
