Roy T. Meyers, Political Science, in Reuters Special Report

UMBC political science professor and budget expert Roy T. Meyers reflected in a special report from Reuters this week that in the U.S. “we pay very little attention to how the money’s actually spent unless a scandal comes up.” Further, “the kind of scandal we’re seeing right now is a scandal of opportunity costs, missed opportunities to do things efficiently.” The article, “On Borrowed Time: Budget Delays Start to Hurt,” examines the deep and broad effects of the current federal budget standoff among lawmakers. It was picked up by MSNBC, NPR, the Chicago Tribune and others.
