On July 12, 2016, the Hutchins Center on Fiscal and Monetary Policy at Brookings Institution, the Rosenberg Institute of Global Finance at Brandeis International Business School, and Olin Business School at Washington University St. Louis are teaming together to heighten and advance the discussion around municipal markets and finance.
