The United States has been experiencing overall economic growth and decreasing unemployment over the last few years. Even with this recent success, the impacts of the Great Recession that occurred a decade ago remind national, state, and local stakeholders to prepare their respective economies for potential shocks.

Please feel free to join REMI for an upcoming webinar, “Fiscal Resiliency Using Tax-PI,” scheduled for Tuesday, August 20th from 2 to 3 p.m. (ET) that features economic associates Jacob Linger and Harry Walsh exploring the Tax-PI model’s ability to evaluate fiscal resiliency.

In preparing for possible economic disruptions at any level of government, it is important for policymakers to evaluate fiscal resiliency, which refers to the ability for a state budget to withstand substantial shifts in the economy.

In this webinar, Mr. Linger and Mr. Walsh will overview the workings of Tax-PI and examine several analyses that have incorporated this model in the past. They will also give an in-depth demonstration on how to use Tax-PI to evaluate prospective scenarios, including national recessions and local disruptions that can affect tax revenues or expenditure decisions.
