In order to make informed decisions, policy makers want to know the potential costs and benefits of environmental regulations.

We cordially invite you to our monthly luncheon on September 28th, 2017 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. when REMI CEO Fred Treyz, Ph.D. and REMI Economist Peter Evangelakis, Ph.D., present an example of environmental policy analysis: a macroeconomic impact assessment from the South Coast Air Quality Management District.

SCAQMD, the pollution control agency for the city of Los Angeles and nearby communities, prepared a macroeconomic analysis to inform decision-makers and stakeholders about the potential costs and benefits of the 2016 Air Quality Management Plan (AQMP) and how the associated socioeconomic impacts would affect communities within the region.

The estimated costs and benefits of the 2016 AQMP are expected to alter, to various degrees, the economic decisions made by households, businesses, and other economic actors. Some businesses would see production costs go up, while other businesses would benefit from a greater demand for their services and technologies.

For this luncheon, Dr. Treyz and  Dr. Evangelakis will go over employment impacts on different industries, estimates of policies’ health impacts, and how the costs and benefits affect the economic decisions of producers and consumers.

REMI luncheons are held each month at Metro Center, 700 12th Street, NW, Suite 700, Washington D.C. 20005.

Lunch will be provided at no charge, although we ask that you register in advance. If you would like to attend this event, please email Brian Boyd at, contact us by phone at (413) 549-1169, or click here to register online.
