TN-ASPA’s lunchtime lecture this month is on capital budgeting, with Metro Nashville’s finance director Rich Riebeling tomorrow (Thursday November 18th). Hope you can make it!
It’s in Training Room 1 off the 3rd floor Atrium, past the bookstore. BYOL (bring your own lunch)
This segment on infrastructure touches on so many aspects of public budgeting and finance and PA generally, I had to share it with you. Budgeting for uncertain risks…capital budgeting…the web of intergovernmental and private sector relationships…challenges of privatization/contracting out…the role of nonprofits/advocacy groups as Lindblom’s “value watchdogs”…regulation…government as insurer of last resort…see if you can relate the conversation to these themes…
