    The case for evidence-based policymaking in Washington
    The most radical and surprising development in Washington policymaking today is the use of scientific research to determine what does or doesn't work in government spending. Basing spending on rigorous evaluation of a program's results may seem self-...
  • Deflated regional Football

    It's much easier to be critical than to be correct. — Benjamin Disraeli The challenge before our region is not unlike the subject of deflated footballs. There has been a lot of talk lately about deflated footballs. A controversy exploded when the...
