Public Finance


We seek to advance tax and budget policies that promote both fiscal stability for government and economic opportunity, mobility, and security for all. 

We Work In

Structural dysfunction in Congress, special interests, and increasing political polarization have created significant hurdles to adopting tax and budget systems that achieve these goals.

That’s why we support and share high quality research that helps policymakers craft smart, sustainable, and equitable legislative solutions grounded in evidence and data. This means identifying issue areas ripe for reform, generating the best analysis and insights, and ensuring the work reaches those who can make an impact.
