Abstract

This project looks at the general method of maintaining systems of public infrastructure and the relationship to overall economic health. Using a generic mathematical model, this project demonstrates that the current pressure based ordering system serves to amplify trends in the economy. The model is then used to develop and test policies aimed at minimizing or eliminating this behavior.
