Ep 33: Ralph Martire on Budget Accountability
Public policy touches every part of our daily lives: where our tax dollars go, where we can afford to live, what opportunities our children receive in school. In this episode, Ralph Martire explains how the Center for Budget and Tax Accountability is taking on systemic challenges through policy reform.
Ralph Martire is the Arthur Rubloff Professor of Public Policy at Roosevelt University. He also serves as the executive director of the CTBA, a bipartisan think tank. You may have read his columns in your local newspaper or heard him on the news.
Ralph and I talk about how he got his start in public policy and the CTBA’s evidence-based approach to social justice. This episode is the first in a three-part series on their work to address racial and economic disparities.
I hope you’ll enjoy.
