Randal O'Toole, a Cato Institute Senior Fellow working on urban growth, public land, and transportation issues, will be the guest speaker for the Smith Center for Private Enterprise Studies lecture series on November 14.
He will present, "Gridlock: Why We're Stuck in Traffic and What to Do About It." The Cato Institute is a public policy research organization — a think tank — dedicated to the principles of individual liberty, limited government, free markets and peace. Its scholars and analysts conduct independent, nonpartisan research on a wide range of policy issues.
O'Toole authored Reforming the Forest Service (Island Press, 1988) and Gridlock: Why We're Stuck in Traffic and What to Do About It (Cato Institute 2010). In Gridlock, O’Toole argues instead that we should focus on improving methods of transportation that will increase everyone's mobility and pay for themselves, whether it's cars, buses, planes, or trains.

The Smith Center lecture series is free and open to the public. Event starts at 2 p.m. in room 311 of the old University Union.
