Moneyball For Government
Jim Nussle and Peter Orszag
Data and evidence don't lie – but for too long, our policy makers haven't paid them nearly enough attention.
In 2014, an all-star team of leaders and thinkers from across the political spectrum came together to propose an exciting new vision for the country – one where policy makers base decisions not on politics or expedience, but on the hard evidence of what really works. The first edition of Moneyball for Government did more than just spark conversations; it spurred meaningful action. Now, Michael Gerson and Rajiv Shah join the second edition of the book, as they explain a variety of ways to apply this revolution of rigor to foreign assistance. For anyone who believes that government must do better for America's children and their families, Moneyball for Government is a home run.
