Welcome to Just Economics, LLC

With more than 25 years of experience, Just Economics helps communities harmonize economic incentives with public policy objectives to:

  • Reduce blight by putting vacant and boarded-up properties back into use;
  • Enhance business and employment opportunities;
  • Fund transit and other public infrastructure;
  • Reduce Parking & Traffic Congestion;
  • Enhance housing affordability;
  • Enhance the environment; and
  • Reduce sprawl.

Just Economics accomplishes these goals by helping communities re-engineer taxes, fees and regulations so that:

  • Incentives embedded in taxes, fees and regulations encourage the private sector to create jobs, affordable housing, transportation efficiency and sustainable economic development;
  • Needed public revenues are obtained; and
  • Government sustainability, efficiency and competitiveness are enhanced.
