About Moneyball for Government

Just as Billy Beane, General Manager of the Oakland A’s, famously transformed baseball by ignoring the scouts and instead used data to build championship contending teams despite limited budgets, Moneyball for Government has the potential to transform the way government at all levels makes important funding decisions. Instead of relying on gut instinct, or worse, special interests, policymakers must use data and evidence when deciding how best to invest increasingly limited taxpayer dollars.

About Results for America

Results for America (RFA) improves outcomes for young people, their families, and communities by shifting public resources toward evidence-based, results-driven solutions.

RFA is working to achieve this goal by building a strong bipartisan “Invest in What Works” coalition; developing and advancing the next generation of evidence-based, results-driven practices, policies, and programs; and supporting leaders at all levels of government to invest in what works.

In November, 2014, Results for America published Moneyball for Government, the best-selling book authored by a bipartisan group of nationally-recognized experts to help ensure that budget, policy, and management decisions by governments at all levels are informed by the best possible data and evidence about what works.
