Open Source Policy Center launches Tax Brain - AEI

Open Source Policy Center launches Tax Brain - AEI: "In a bipartisan, all-inclusive effort to make economic policy analysis more transparent, accessible, and scientific, scholars at the American Enterprise Institute’s Open Source Policy Center (OSPC) have pioneered a new approach to policy analysis based on open source economic modeling, collaborating with a nationwide and bipartisan community of economists, software developers, and policy experts.

Today, OSPC launches its first web application, TaxBrain, which allows the public and experts alike to study the effect of individual income and payroll tax policy reforms using open source economic simulation models.

This breakthrough in open source public policy research inaugurates a new era in government transparency by making economic modeling and data analysis both accessible and collaborative."
