    NAPA names four fellows from Maxwell School faculty

    Four Maxwell School faculty members have been selected to join the National Academy of Public Administration as 2019 Academy Fellows. The inductees — all of them professors of public administration and international affairs — are James E. Baker, Leonard Burman, Leonard Lopoo, and Peter Wilcoxen.


    Lopoo quoted in Medium article on immigration policy, fertility

    Len Lopoo was interviewed for the Medium article "Trump Is Making It Harder for Immigrants to Get Green Cards and Hurting Our Economy in the Process." ". . . we’re not thinking at all about the long-term. What’s going to happen in 30 or 40 years, as people start to age?" says Lopoo.


    Lopoo discusses govt policies to increase US fertility rate in Medium

    Len Lopoo was interviewed for the Medium article "Don’t Freak Out About American Fertility." According to Lopoo, the big limitation of many interventions is simply that the effects they produce — and, in the United States, the financial and in-kind benefits involved — are generally small. Such programs may have particularly limited effects on women who are delaying childbearing for professional reasons.
