The California Policy Lab, as UC Berkeley's Jesse Rothstein and Evan White explain, is a new research center that creates data-driven insights for the public good.

Rothstein and White, who have both worked in government, share their enthusiasm for these partnerships in this conversation with Henry E. Brady, dean of the Goldman School of Public Policy at UC Berkeley.
