Florida is dissolving the Reedy Creek Improvement District, home of Disney World. What happens next is anyone’s guess.

I recently had the pleasure of writing a blog post for the London School of Economic’s US Centre Blog. It covers a recent controversy about the Reedy Creek Improvement District – something I have a somewhat unique perspective on as a scholar of local governments and, in particular, special districts. See below for the full text of the post as well as a link to the original.

The structure of US local governments is often a poor predictor of local economic growth

I recently had the pleasure of writing a blog post for the London School of Economic’s US Centre Blog. It covers a recent publication in the Journal of Urban Affairs on the implications of local government structure on long-run economic growth in the US metropolitan areas. You can find more information about this piece here. See below for the full text of the post as well as a link to the original.

Academic Project Management Notion (Update)

About a year ago, I wrote a small post about how I use Notion as a project management tool (the post is here). I didn’t really expect it to be as popular as it is, but I also didn’t expect myself to change too much about the process either. It was working. Fast forward one, sort of over, but not really pandemic later. Things have certainly changed, sort of. This post is meant to explain some of those changes and to provide a template for anyone who wants to give this a spin.

Some of my random musing. Typically on data visualization. Sometimes my research. Sometimes both. View an index of posts by category.
