Title: The Role and Importance of Municipal Bonds : A Conversation with Colleen Woodell

In this episode of Smart Talk, Jeffrey Previdi of the Henry George School speaks with Colleen Woodell, former Chair of the MSRB about the role and importance of Municipal Bonds, a primary source of funding for state and local infrastructure and an investment vehicle of choice for American households. Jeff and Colleen also highlight the theoretical plausibility of an LVT linked muni bond market, but stress the heavy reliance of our existing revenue system on the property tax as the single most important obstacle to its implementation.
