For a while I’ve been publishing annual very short pieces in Tax Jotwell, aka “The Journal of Things We Like (Lots),” which is a forum for bringing to broader attention recently published pieces that one especially likes.
My 2020 entry has just been published, and you can find it here. It discusses a book that was recently published by the Hamilton Project, edited by Heather Boushey, Ryan Nunn, and Jay Shambaugh, and entitled Recession-Ready: Fiscal Policies to Stabilize the American Economy. You can actually download the book for free here.
If the Democrats control both houses and the presidency in 2021, it’s vital, among other urgent priorities, that they enact policies like those discussed here in order to stave off the next effort at fiscal sabotage (like that which slowed the recovery in the early Obama years).
