The single name listed on the cover of this document by no means implies that it was the work of one person. This briefing was a true collaboration among many RAND colleagues, of which I was simply the team leader. From the initial structured brainstorming effort, to the innumerable dry runs, to the drafting of the final document, many RAND researchers made major and minor intellectual contributions to the work. But all were indispensable in producing the final product. However, it is neither possible to grant all equal credit as authors nor to discriminate among them. I gratefully acknowledge the contributions of all those listed below.
Lynn Davis, Rick Eden, Charles Goldman, John Gordon, Adam Grissom, John Halliday, Stephen Hosmer, David Kassing, Charles Kaylor, Robert Klein, Frances Lussier, Roger Molander, David Oaks, Eric Peltz, Walter Perry, Bruce Pirnie, Jerry Sollinger, Ron Sortor, John Wise, Laurinda Zeman.
The author would also like to thank Professor Andrew Loerch of George Mason University and J. Michael Polich of RAND for their detailed and thoughtful reviews of an earlier version of this document.
