The Link Between Access to U.S. Municipal Debt and Socioeconomic Outcomes

Join Jeff Gitterman as he sits down with Phoebe Devries from the ICE Sustainable Finance research team to discuss ICE’s recently published social impact paper: “The Link Between Access to U.S. Municipal Debt and Socioeconomic Outcomes.” This research examines the interplay between school district debt, the socioeconomic characteristics of school districts, and student and district outcomes. They also discuss the development and uses of the ICE Social Impact Score, an indicator of the potential benefits of an investment in a given geographically defined area. Don't miss this enlightening conversation on the correlations between municipal debt and educational outcomes, poverty and health, and ideas for increasing access to the muni bond market for high impact communities.
