Though now retired from teaching (except for occasional advising of graduate students at Princeton and undergraduates at Dartmouth), I continue to study complex organizations, leadership strategies, problems of urban development, and other issues. In 2010-11, I published two essays on the Supreme Court of Canada, and one on water conflicts between the two nations. In 2013, I published a joint paper comparing the port-development agencies of NY/NJ and LA/LB (Oxford U Press), with a follow-on essay in a U of MInn. Press book in 2018. In 2014, I published an article on problems of misperception (see Kahnemann theory) that blocked two major NY-NJ projects. (J of Urban History, 11/14). I have spent the past two years working on a project focused on corruption in NYC, (separately) critically evaluating Gov. Christie's strategies in reshaping the Port Authority of NY&NJ, and writing essays on same-sex marriage (an exchange with Robert George, published in the blog "Public Discourse", 2014), and on hate speech. I spent spring 2017 as a member of the Gender Research Institute at Dartmouth, and supervising several students who carried out research on gender issues. In 2015 I also published an essay on Robert Moses in the journal NY History, and in 2017 I published an essay on the politics of reducing airport noise. I continue work on hate speech and violent pornography, and on water politics on the US northern border.
