經濟學?講呢啲!, Sung Ming Chow Jul 2022

經濟學?講呢啲!, Sung Ming Chow

經濟學?講呢啲!

劍橋大學經濟學教授張夏準曾說:人們往往覺得經濟學高深莫測,若非專家不宜評頭品足;就連不少經濟學家也這樣想,經濟學還是留給我們這些專家好了!

問題在於:每個人每日都在參與經濟活動,難道就不能用常識來了解經濟?經濟學故弄玄虛的專業術語,真能幫助我們更加認識經濟現實?抑或那只是一套「語言偽術」,一直愚弄著全世界的所有人……包括那些欠缺思考能力的決策官員?

是時候共同掃盲,齊齊走出經濟學的迷障!

Chang Ha-Joon, Reader of Cambridge University once said, people tend to think that economics is difficult, and should be left for the experts; even economists share the same mood, it should better be left to us!

Nevertheless, everybody engage in economic activities everyday. Can’t we just understand economics with common sense? Suffocated by technical jargons, can economics really help us to better grasp economic reality? Or, are they merely chicaneries misleading the whole world……including top government officials who often suffer from Intellectual ...

La aparición y difusión de nuevas tecnologías con redes públicas de internet han permitido un amplio acceso de las poblaciones a la información y al conocimiento. Sin embargo, hay que preguntarse si esto se da en condiciones de igualdad y universalidad. Desde la UNESCO es claro que debe caminarse en la senda de desarrollo humano y sostenible. Así, las sociedades del conocimiento se deben apoyar en “la libertad de expresión, el acceso universal a la información y al conocimiento, el respeto a la diversidad cultural y lingüística, y una educación de calidad para todos”.

Safety Interventions For Houseless Pedestrians, Peter Domine, Sean Doyle, Asif Haque, Angie Martinez Sulvaran, Nick Meusch, Meisha Whyte

TREC Friday Seminar Series

Cities across the U.S. are facing alarming increases in traffic fatalities, especially among the number of pedestrians who are struck and killed by drivers. Last year, 70 percent of all pedestrian fatalities in Portland were of people experiencing houselessness. As the Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) is updating the city's Vision Zero Plan, a team of PSU urban and regional planning masters students have been investigating how to reduce the risk of being hit and killed specifically for unhoused people. During this presentation, the Street Perspective team will explain the situation, review their approach, and then share the ...

Italian 394: Italian Renaissance Foodways

(Disclaimer: Zine is in Italian)

In this zine, I explore how people in Renaissance Italy show themselves in their food and other items you may find at a dinner party, such as a maiolica or a fork. What does your food and your habits say about you as a person, where you came from, and your culture? I dissect specific instances in how some items reveal more about your behavior than you may think.

Prioritizing Transit In Portland: Checking In On The Rose Lanes Project, Nathan Mcneil, April Bertelsen, Jaime Jeffrey, Jaime Snook

TREC Friday Seminar Series

Transit priority lanes restrict access to certain lanes, prioritizing transit movement, while sometimes allowing for other users or specific actions - for example shared bus and bike lanes, or shared bus and right-turn lanes. Red coloring is sometimes used to reinforce the transit priority with the goal of improving the reliability, safety and compliance with the lane restrictions. The City of Portland and TriMet have been working with partners to use these tools to improve mobility and transit access under the Enhanced Transit Corridors Plan and Rose Lanes Project. This presentation will report back on early lessons learned as part of ...


Why Your City Needs A Car Master Plan, Cathy Tuttle May 2022

Why Your City Needs A Car Master Plan, Cathy Tuttle

TREC Friday Seminar Series

In 2022, cars are ubiquitous and completely embedded into America’s economy and social fabric. American cities don’t make car plans, but all transportation plans – whether they are for people who walk, bike, take transit, run freight or delivery businesses – are all written in response to cars. Transportation planning is all about cars; supporting cars or constraining cars. How did our cities evolve into places where cars dominate, and where can we go from here? To move to a new paradigm, cities need to acknowledge car dominance and focus on cars with the same rigor they do other modal ...

Evaluation Of Staten Island's Wetland Services And Environmental Costs Of Removal, Gracyn Cole May 2022

Evaluation Of Staten Island's Wetland Services And Environmental Costs Of Removal, Gracyn Cole

Arts & Sciences Undergraduate Showcase

In 2017, the New York City Council approved a zoning variance allowing the demolition of 28-acres of wetlands near Staten Island’s Graniteville neighborhood in order to build a BJ’s Wholesale grocery store, a gas station, and a parking lot for 835 cars. This action raised concern for the people living within this neighborhood due to the amount of water detention the wetlands provide during natural disaster events. Specifically, the Graniteville Wetlands have protected the surrounding neighborhoods from severe natural disasters such as Hurricane Sandy which, in turn, has allowed these neighborhoods to contribute less to flood mitigation through ...
