Slip Slidin’ Away: How Republicans and Democrats Abandoned the Young, Working Families, People of Color, and the Pursuit of Opportunity for All

Grant Year: 2020

Eugene Steuerle and Andrew Yarrow will research and write a book examining the extent to which the fiscal trajectory of the United States is contributing to underinvestment in programs that can increase economic opportunity and support faster economic growth. They will analyze long-term trends in U.S. government fiscal policies, assess how those trends are inhibiting investment in mobility- and growth-enhancing policies, explore the political dynamics that limit opportunities for policy change, and develop ideas for fiscal policy reforms.
