Consultant and Editor, TaxVox Blog
Tax Policy Center
"Much of my work is in the nexus between fiscal policy and long-term care. A question I often ask is: How will the U.S. be best able to care for the frail elderly and disabled in an environment of both constrained government resources and major changes in the nature of families?"
Howard Gleckman is author of Caring for Our Parents (St. Martin's Press) and is a frequent writer and speaker on long-term care. He is author of the long-term care chapter in Landmark: The Inside Story of America's New Health Care Law and What It Means for Us All (Public Affairs) and of the chapter on long-term care financing in Universal Coverage of Long-Term Care (Russell Sage, forthcoming). He writes and edits TaxVox, the fiscal policy blog of the Urban-Brookings Tax Policy Center.
He was formerly senior correspondent in the Washington bureau of Business Week, where he was a National Magazine Award finalist. He is a member of the Board of Trustees of Suburban Hospital (Bethesda MD) and the Jewish Council for the Aging of Greater Washington.
