The Urban Institute studies how federal policies affect America’s workforce, capital stock, and opportunity for economic growth. Our experts examine how education and training can boost worker productivity, how fiscal policies can enhance America’s long-term economic potential, and how countercyclical policies can help support the economy during downturns.
