Brookings Launches Transition Website

by

The Brookings Institution says it has been providing advice to newly-elected presidents for the past 90 years. For this transition, it has assembled a multi-faceted set of web-based resources to assist the Obama Transition Team.


The project director, Darrell West, says Brookings will host a dozen forums related to the transition. The first was held last week. According to Government Executive’s Robert Brodsky, the first forum, held last week, hosted a bipartisan panel of political veterans who agreed that Obama’s initial agenda should be targeted to stabilizing the financial markets and curbing the recession.


The website has a dozen policy-related memos to the president-elect in areas such as foreign affairs, energy, and the tax system.


Stephen Hess’s open memo of advice in the Washington Post to President-Elect Obama is based on his new “Workbook for the President-Elect.”


In addition, the site will post weekly podcasts with updates.
