|Boyd Center for Business and Economic Research
As director of the Boyd Center, Don Bruce regularly provides objective, non-partisan policy research and evaluation under contracts with an array of government agencies at the federal and state levels. His recent work has included an ongoing evaluation of Tennessee’s welfare program (Families First) for the Tennessee Department of Human Services, an analysis of teacher supply and demand in Tennessee for the Governor’s Office of Education Policy, and a forecast of expenditures on Tennessee Education Lottery Scholarships for the Tennessee Higher Education Commission. In addition to his Boyd Center research, Bruce studies the economic and behavioral effects of tax policies on such things as small business activity and owner-occupied housing.
