Academic discussion: Lowering borrowing costs

The Hamilton Project – Common Muni [Expected Read Time: 60 mins]

This discussion paper is a proposal from the authors. As emphasized in The Hamilton Project’s
original strategy paper, the Project was designed in part to provide a forum for leading thinkers across the
nation to put forward innovative and potentially important economic policy ideas that share the Project’s
broad goals of promoting economic growth, broad-based participation in growth, and economic security.
The authors are invited to express their own ideas in discussion papers, whether or not the Project’s staff or
advisory council agrees with the specific proposals. This discussion paper is offered in that spirit.
