We recently hosted a panel discussion to examine the impact of cheap. efficient cars such as the Nano. Titled “Mad Max or the Jetsons,” the event looks at different possible futures for transportation in our society. Here is some video from the event, broken up by the four speakers. Unfortunately, the event was held in a dark room (to make use of the projector), so the visual quality is not great, but the presentations and ensuing discussion still come across clearly and are well worth the time to view.

Fernando de Aragon, Executive Director of the Ithaca Tompkins County Transportation Council
