CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (May 2, 2013) – The Lincoln Institute of Land Policy launched the fourth annual Lincoln Scholars program this month, bringing together recent Ph.D. recipients in public finance and urban economics with senior economists and journal editors in those fields.

The assistant professors supported by the Lincoln Institute, designated Lincoln Scholars, are gathering May 2-4 for a program that included a discussion with editors on publishing in public finance and urban economics journals, presentations by Lincoln Scholars on research interests, a workshop in which senior scholars commented on draft papers or proposals written by the Lincoln Scholars, and a day and a half of papers and discussion of new research in urban economics and public finance.

This year’s Lincoln Scholars are Spencer Brien of Arizona State University, Katie Fitzpatrick of Seattle University, Zackary Hawley of Texas Christian University, Ohla Krupa of Seattle University, Rachel Meltzer of the New School, and Mark Phillips of the University of Southern California.

The senior scholars are James Alm, editor of Public Finance Review of Tulane, Rosanne Altshuler of Rutgers University, Edward Coulson, editor of Real Estate Economics of Pennsylvania State University, Thomas Davidoff, editor of the Journal of Housing Economics of the University of British Columbia, Thomas Downes, editor of Education Finance & Policy, of Tufts University, Dan McMillen, editor of Regional Science & Urban Economics, of the University of Illinois, Mark Partridge, editor of the Journal of Regional Science of Ohio State University, Amy Schwartz of New York University, and Mark Skidmore of Michigan State University.|

The program is organized by Daphne Kenyon and Dan McMillen, visiting fellows in the Department of Valuation and Taxation at the Lincoln Institute of Land Policy, which is chaired by senior fellow Joan Youngman.

“This program allows the Lincoln Institute to work with new academics who represent the future of public finance and urban economics research,” Youngman said.

The Lincoln Institute of Land Policy is a leading resource for key issues concerning the use, regulation, and taxation of land. Providing high-quality education and research, the Lincoln Institute strives to improve public dialogue and decisions about land policy.
