ALP 307: Public Policy Lab: Financial Challenges Facing US Cities

Cities in the United States are tasked with providing a great variety of services to citizens, including public safety, education, and the construction and maintenance of infrastructure. Across the country, governments at the local level spent more than $2.1 trillion and had nearly $2.1 trillion in debt outstanding in 2020 according to the US Census. In this 10-week team-based Action Learning Program course, participants will focus on 3 different cities across the US (no travel is required) to research one of three local government finance issues: infrastructure, debts and pensions, and tax incentives and economic development. Teams will assess the efficacy of existing local policies and propose data-driven and evidence-based recommendations for new policy. Students will have the opportunity to engage with city officials and subject matter experts to aid in the preparation of reports that will be presented to local governments.
