Policy Director Joshua Gordon will give students in the Washington Semester Program at American University a chart talk on long-term budget trends and facilitate a Principles and Priorities budget exercise.
Principles & Priorities is our flagship exercise that has been used in hundreds of High Schools, Colleges and Universities across the country. In it, participants make decisions about the best combination of program spending and tax policies to match with their larger sense of what the principles behind our budgets should be and what priorities the government should place at the forefront of fiscal decision-making.
