Fiscal Policy

Maximum Sustainable Yield (spendable earnings) $6 billion a year

ISER has long studied the fiscal policies of Alaska's state government, which has depended heavily on oil revenues since the 1970s. That work includes:

  • Outlining potential fiscal strategies for the state
  • Assessing potential non-oil revenue sources
  • Examining ways to improve the state's long-term fiscal planning
  • Documenting how much the state economy and government depend on oil revenues

Lead researcher: Scott Goldsmith, professor emeritus of economics, at osgoldsmith@uaa.alaska.edu
