In a recent blog post, Michael Brown of Metro Analytics sought to quantify the benefits of congestion pricing.

In a post on the "Smart Growth for Conservatives" blog, Michael Brown sought to quantify the benefits of congestion pricing.  For example, "Using TREDIS economic impact software, [his] firm tested what congestion pricing could do for Utah’s Wasatch Front in 2040 compared to the region’s 2040 plan.
