About the Authors

Saqib Bhatti and Carrie Sloan are with the ReFund America Project (RAP) of the Action Center on Race & the Economy (ACRE). RAP tackles the structural problems in the municipal finance system that cost governments across the United States billions of dollars each year at the expense of public services. ACRE focuses on the role that the financial sector plays in driving racial and economic inequality. Bhatti and Sloan research the role of financial deals in contributing to public budget distress and work with policy experts, community leaders, and public officials to develop, advocate for, and implement solutions to save taxpayer dollars.
