Alice Rivlin, the founding director of the Congressional Budget Office who went on to serve as the Office of Management and Budget director under President Clinton and is now a Senior Fellow in Economics and Health Policy at the Brooking Institution, mulls today's paradox. At a time where policy makers and legislators have access to more data-based evidence about potential costs and effects of policies than ever before, the institutions that produce these independent analyses are under increasingly strident partisan attack. Dr. Rivlin speaks how evidence-based practitioners got into this tough situation, and how to navigate their way out. She is presented by the Goldman School of Public Policy at UC Berkeley.
