The second Obama administration faces a complex policy environment. While generating economic growth at home amid continued risk of financial instability abroad remains a key policy challenge, numerous crises around the globe require policy attention. In this context, the fellows and scholars of the Baker Institute have drafted a set of recommendations for the incoming administration. Within each issue area -- from energy policy to immigration reform -- these recommendations provide policymakers with an analytic overview of the opportunities and challenges that need to be addressed by longer-term, strategic policy formulation. It is our hope that our recommendations will provide to be useful starting points for decision-makers working to develop comprehensive, forward-looking policies.
