Leonard  Burman, professor of public administration and international affairs and Paul Volcker Chair in Behavioral Economics, was interviewed for the Wall Street Journal article "House Panel Passes Tax Break for Gym Memberships, Exercise Classes." "Every principle of tax policy is violated by this," says Burman. "It’s not at all clear that it would have any effect on overall health of the population or that it’s a particularly effective way to make people healthy." 07/13/18
