Welcome to the Open Source Policy Center | OSPC
"Policymakers increasingly rely on computational models to predict the budgetary and broader economic impacts of current and proposed policies, especially those involving taxes and entitlements. Estimates from these models often determine a bill’s success or failure in the legislative process and public sphere. The Open Source Policy Center's first focus is supporting community-driven projects that analyze the budgetary and broader economic impact of taxes. These models are completely transparent and freely available to researchers across the country. OSPC also provides an easy-to-use online interface that allows students, policymakers, journalists, and informed citizens to interact with the models and learn for themselves about the effects of policies."

WonkComms | What is the future for think tank and research communications?
"The strategies, channels and tools used to communicate research are in flux. All over the world, communications teams in think tanks and research organisations are hitting on great ideas and innovations. These innovations are helping their research to be heard, found and acted upon by existing and new audiences. Though many blogs and sites exist that discuss research communications, nowhere is there a space for communications staff working within research institutions to share their practical experiences implementing revolutionary and evolutionary change using digital tools. There is no way for research communicators to connect with and discuss exciting innovations with others just like them, and learn from their peers."

PublicEye.org - Website of Political Research Associates - Toxic to Democracy Conspiracy Theories, Demonization,
"Right-wing pundits demonize scapegoated groups and individuals in our society, implying that it is urgent to stop them from wrecking the nation. Some angry people in the audience already believe conspiracy theories in which the same scapegoats are portrayed as subversive, destructive, or evil. Add in aggressive apocalyptic ideas that suggest time is running out and quick action mandatory and you have a perfect storm of mobilized resentment threatening to rain bigotry and violence across the United States."
