JPAM Featured Articles

As part of APPAM's ongoing effort to showcase JPAM authors' work to the APPAM membership and the public policy world at large, we asked JPAM article authors to answer a couple of questions about their research.

  • What was the genesis of the idea for their research/paper?
  • What is the main conclusion that becomes evident from their research? (Or, what is their main takeaway?)
  • What are some of the more interesting or surprising findings/conclusions did they find in the process of bringing it together?
