Recession Readiness

Are You Ready?

To the extent that past is prologue —  after ten years of economic expansion nationally —  the start of the next recession is now almost certainly closer than the end of the last one. Whenever that next downturn comes, what can state and local governments do today to better prepare for that impact ahead?

We believe that good diagnosis is prerequisite to maintaining good fiscal health. Our "Recession Readiness in the Public Sector" report outlines a set of concrete action steps that state or local governments can take during periods of revenue growth.
