Review for CENTER FOR STUDY OF ECONOMICS, Philadelphia, PA, USA
CSE is doing important work of a kind that few other organizations do. Many organizations address symptoms, but CSE's work addresses the systemic root causes of both economic decline and economic growth, while recommending policies to counteract the former and encourage the latter. Their recommendations are evidence-based, relying on sound theory, proven best practices, and common sense -- values all too often missing from the policy arena. They provide tools which could be applied on a national scale, but also can help a great deal at the local and State levels -- the very places where the most acute fiscal pain is being felt today. A win for CSE would help them to continue and expand their important work at a time when it's needed most.
