Since the creation of the IBM Center for The Business of
Government over 15 years ago, it has been our goal to help
public sector leaders and managers address real-world problems
by sponsoring independent, third-party research from top
minds in academe and the nonprofit sector.
Goldberg and Neiman analyze the financial experiences of
California local governments from 2007 to 2013 and present
findings and recommendations for managing at the local level
given budget constraints.
