In collaboration with the University of Michigan Business School's Office of Tax Policy Research, CLOSUP sponsored a research conference on November 22, 2002 entitled 'Privatization: Issues of State and Local Public Infrastructure.' The conference brought together leading scholars in public policy and economics from across the U.S. to examine privatization from the perspectives of local labor markets, fiscal pressures and political choices, and to consider the effects of privatization in areas such as highways, prisons and municipal services.

The agenda as well as abstracts of the papers and a list of all conference participants are provided below.
