Brown Bag with Noah Berger from Massachusetts Budget and Policy Center

Brown Bag on the
Budget and Policy
The State Fiscal Crisis: Short Term and
Long-Term Causes, and the Consequences

Join us for a BROWN BAG LUNCH on
Tuesday, September 20th 2011
State Library of Massachusetts
Room 442 State House
12 noon until 1:30 PM
Bring your lunch and hear Noah Berger, President of The Massachusetts Budget and Policy Center (MassBudget), provide in depth analysis on our state fiscal crisis examining the immediate and longer term causes.
The presentation will also examine how fiscal policies in Massachusetts compare to those in other states, and how the performance of our state economy stacks up.
MassBudget is widely viewed as a go-to resource for accessible, independent research and analysis of state budget and tax policy, as well as economic issues with particular attention to effects on low and moderate income people in Massachusetts.
The presentation will also include a short demonstration of MassBudget’s unique and user-friendly Budget Browser, an online interactive budget tool for searching state budget information from Fiscal Year 2001 to present.
