Open Policy Analysis for a Progressive Wealth Tax
This repository is part of an Open Policy Analysis (OPA) on Senator Elizabeth Warren's proposal for a wealth tax. It consist of three components:
3 - This Github repository, which stores all data, code, and materials necessary to replicate the analysis in full with minimal effort.
This OPA was the result of a collaboration between UC Berkeley economists Emmanuel Saez and Gabriel Zucman, the original authors of the analysis, and the Berkeley Initiative for Transparency in the Social Sciences (BITSS).
This is the first collaborative case study on how to bring open science practices into policy analysis. It complies with the highest levels of the Open Policy Analysis (OPA) Guidelines. We also look to demonstrate tools, ideas, and practices through which OPA can be implemented in practice. This exercise, and future case studies, in turn will inform the Guidelines.
