“WHY WE OVERBUILD & WHY WE WILL DO IT AGAIN”
GUEST SPEAKER: DR. RACHEL WEBER - Dr. Rachel Weber is an Associate Professor in the Urban Planning and Policy Program at the University of Illinois at Chicago where she teaches courses and conducts research in the fields of economic development, real estate, and public finance. Much of her recent work has focused on the design and effectiveness of property-tax based incentives for urban development; publications on this topic have appeared in such journals as Economic Geography, The Journal of the American Planning Association, and Regional Science and Urban Economics. She is the co-editor of the Oxford University Press Handbook of Urban Planning (Oxford 2012), author of Swords into Dow Shares: Governing the Decline of the Military Industrial Complex (Westview 2001), and author of the forthcoming book Why We Overbuild (under contract, University of Chicago Press). In addition to her academic research agenda, Dr. Weber serves as a consultant to local governments, developers, and community-based organizations on issues related to public spending, property taxes, and neighborhood revitalization. She was appointed by Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel to the Tax Increment Financing (TIF) Reform Task Force in 2011 to provide recommendations to the new administration for reforming this economic development tool and was a member of the Urban Policy Advisory Committee for then-presidential candidate Barack Obama. She received her undergraduate degree from Brown University and her master's degree and doctorate in City and Regional Planning from Cornell University.
