“The economic and fiscal need for more evidence-based policymaking is strong. But more directly, we are simply not doing well enough in developing solutions to social problems. … To rectify this, we need to reform the way the government does social spending so that we produce more experimentation, perform more rigorous evaluation of innovative ideas, and pay more attention to performance in funding decisions.” – Harvard Economist Jeff Liebman, April 17, 2013
