For Support Of Historical And Comparative Research On Ways To Improve The Federal Budget Process

Overview
Recent years have seen the federal budget process oscillate between exhaustion and crisis. The so-called grand bargain that only recently seemed within reach has proven to be elusive. A growing number of observers believe that the challenge lies in large part with the convoluted process for budgeting within Congress. This project grant to Paul Posner, a leading authority on the federal budget process at George Mason University, will support a multi-faceted research program to trace the development and analyze the budget process from new and illuminating vantage points. This research will in turn set the stage for a longer run effort to improve the process that Professor Posner will be undertaking with colleagues at other institutions.
