The Political Economy of Municipal Coproduction: Fire and Police in California

April 20, 2015 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Bedrosian Center Research Talk
The Political Economy of Municipal Coproduction: Fire and Police in California

Dr. Juliet Musso
USC Price Houston Flournoy Professor of State Government 

Dr. Musso will explores the political economy of coproduction in municipal policing and fire service provision in California. Her paper, written with Matt Young and Michael Thom, frames coproduction as a two-stage institutional process — the first stage involves the choice to develop a volunteer program, and the second stage determines the reliance on volunteers relative to paid employees.

Dr. Musso holds the Houston Flournoy Professor of State Government at the USC Sol Price School of Public Policy. She has expertise in federalism and urban political economy, with specific research interests in intergovernmental fiscal policy, state and local institutional reform, and collaborative governance.
