Julia Sass Rubin, a Rutgers University professor, found in a recent study the county line gave congressional candidates in New Jersey an advantage of up to 38 percentage points. “When you give a small number of people with that amount of power, you’re opening up for corruption.”

Dr. Taylor Shelton, an assistant professor in the Department of Geosciences at Georgia State University, along with his collaborator Dr. Eric Seymour of Rutgers University, has shed light on the alarming concentration of single-family rental homes in metro Atlanta.
Let’s first consider the AER survey and New York study, which were both published over 30 years ago (in 1992 and 1972-89, respectively). As Rutgers economist Mark Paul has written, decades-old theoretical assumptions about rent control are being increasingly challenged by contemporary evidence:

Research shows that some individuals who experience prolonged incidents of racial discrimination can exhibit symptoms similar to post-traumatic stress disorder including depression, anger, recurring thoughts of the event and physical reactions such as headaches, chest pains and insomnia.
For the U.S. to decarbonize in an orderly fashion, “restrictive supply-side policies that curtail fossil fuel extraction and support workers and communities must play a role,” Rutgers Univresity economists Mark Paul and Lina Moe wrote last year.

“History suggests it’s an incredibly powerful force,” says Julia Sass Rubin. Her research shows that in the past 20 years, New Jersey incumbents running on the line finished with a record of 206 wins and only three losses.
