Shared Responsibility, Shared Risk: Government, Markets and Social Policy in the Twenty-First Century

By Jacob S. Hacker; Ann O’Leary | Go to book overview

Acknowledgments

This volume was made possible by a grant from the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation to the Social Science Research Council (SSRC) for SSRC’s Privatization of Risk project. Craig Calhoun, President of the Social Science Research Council, asked the Berkeley Center on Health, Economic & Family Security at UC Berkeley School of Law (Berkeley CHEFS), of which Jacob Hacker is a founding faculty co-director and Ann O’Leary is the Executive Director, to spearhead a culminating project to develop concrete ideas and solutions to the problem of the increased privatization of risk. We thank the MacArthur Foundation and the Social Science Research Council for their support and particularly Craig Calhoun for his leadership and vision on this project. We also thank Paul Price, the editorial director at SSRC, for helping us launch this project, and Siovahn Walker, who was then a program officer at SSRC, for guiding this project throughout.

Thank you whole heartedly to the authors who agreed to participate in this project and contribute their innovative thinking, good ideas and precious time to this volume: Heather Boushey, Craig Calhoun, Mariano-Florentino Cuéllar, Neil Gilbert, Amy Helburn, Amanda Lehning, Martha Minow, David Moss, Alicia H. Munnell, Katherine Porter, Connor Raso, Andrew Scharlach, Stephen Sugarman, Tara Twomey, and Christian Weller.

In May 2009, we brought together these authors in Berkeley, California to present their working ideas to a peer group of academics and policy practitioners in order to receive feedback. Authors then revised their work and made final presentations in October 2009 to a larger audience of policy thinkers and practitioners in Washington, DC. We thank all those who provided invaluable feedback at these conferences, including: Maeve Elise Brown, Karen Davenport, Will Dow, Maurice Emsellem, Michael Ettlinger, Netsy Firestein, Mark Greenberg, Lief Haase, Alexander Hertel-Fernandez, Ken Jacobs, David Kirp, Gillian Lester, Goodwin Liu, Mary Ann Mason, Paul Nathanson, Mark Paul, John Quigley, Robert Reich, Eric Stein, Jamie Studley, Anne Stuhldreher, Siovahn Walker, Sarah Rosen Wartell, and Micah Weinberg. We thank the Center for American Progress, particularly Sarah Rosen Wartell and Michael Ettlinger, for providing a platform to present
