‘Reaction and Reform in NJ’ Explores Key State Issues

 
(TRENTON) - The Hall Institute of Public Policy – New Jersey has published Reaction and Reform in New Jersey, its second academic journal featuring the major research posted on the institute’s website.
 
“Any serious discussion of public policy needs to examine facts, assertions, data and speculations, which we do in this book,” said George E. Hall, the institute’s founder.
Reaction and Reform in New Jersey contains 15 articles on topics such as ethics, healthcare, property tax and education.  Copies of the 331-page hard cover book are being distributed to government, business and education leaders throughout the state.
 
“The volume takes a broad sweep across New Jersey’s current array of concerns from public policy to public perceptions,” said Michael P. Riccards, the institute’s executive director.
 
Since its inception in 2005, the Hall Institute has emerged as a leading voice for public policy in New Jersey. More than 200 papers have been posted on its website, along with special features such as a Property Tax Forum, an online Virtual Debate between New Jersey's candidates for U.S. Senate, and the contents of its first book, The State of the Garden State.
 
The institute currently is conducting NJ2008, s special project designed to determine New Jerseyans’ priorities for the nation’s next president.  Details are available online at www.hallnj.org/nj2008.
 
The Hall Institute is a non-partisan, not-for-profit foundation that explores social, economic, educational and cultural issues. Hall, a successful business executive and a leading philanthropist who lives in Middletown, N.J, established the institute two years ago.  It is located in Trenton directly across from the New Jersey Statehouse.
