The Alma and Joseph Gildenhorn Book series feat. John Bridgeland and Peter Orszag

Moneyball for Government

January 21, 2015 - The Alma and Joseph Gildenhorn Book Series features Peter Orszag, former director of the Office of Management and Budget and John Bridgeland, former director of the White House Domestic Policy Council discussing their latest book Moneyball for Government.

About Moneyball for Government:
Can data, evidence, and evaluation revolutionize America’s government? Can we build the evidence necessary to determine which practices, policies, and programs work and which don’t; invest in those that work most effectively; and shift resources away from those that consistently fail to achieve desired outcomes? In short, can government play Moneyball? This book is about changing the way government works – so that policy and funding decisions by governments at all levels are informed by the best possible data, evidence, and evaluation about what works. We believe this can be achieved in a bipartisan way. For proof, look no further than the great leaders and thinkers from across the political spectrum who have joined together in this book to help make the case for Moneyball for Government.
