Debunking Cato: Why Portland Works Better Than the Analysis of Its Chief Neo-Libertarian Critic

Tags for this publication:

Mike Lewyn (New Urbanist and Assistant Professor at Florida Coastal School of Law) analyzes a report by CATO neo-libertarian Randal O'Toole that devalued the quality of life in Portland, Oregon. In his fact check Lewyn finds that Portland is a lot harder to label than critics assume. Not only is it less expensive than some other major cities, particularly those in the West, its residents also spend somewhat less time in traffic.
