Grants to this Grantee
for support of the Economic Studies program’s work to improve the federal budget process  
This Brookings Institution project seeks to rebuild trust in the federal budget process among both parties and the American people. Building on almost five years of previous work on budget process reform, the overall purpose of the project will be to foster improvements and reforms in the way Congress conducts its "power of the purse" functions and to help strengthen the possibilities for achieving reforms in the current climate.
for support of senior fellowship  
In media through the decline of mainstream journalism, in politics through the decline of political parties, and in civic life through the decline of associations like civic groups and unions, the country has disempowered intermediaries and gatekeepers. The result, however, has been more chaos and less accountability in government and society. What’s the case for re-intermediating? How can institutions such as parties and mainstream media, and norms such as compromise and objectivity, be strengthened? Jonathan Rauch has been building the case for beleaguered institutions and middlemen in a populist age. This grant will help support his fellowship at the Brookings Institution.
