  • How to Lower the Cost of Construction in New York? Demolish New York’s Scaffold Law

    It is absolutely time to revisit and revise New York State’s absolute liability standard imposed upon contractors and owners for construction-related accidents.

As Elroy Dimson, Emeritus Professor of Finance at London Business School, famously observed: “Risk means ...
