One more time: the Economic Research Service tragedy
I was asked to do a more formal write-up of my blog posts on what’s happening with the Economic Research Service for World Nutrition, a publication of the World Public Health Nutrition Association.
My article is now published as “The Trump Administration’s destruction of the Economic Research Service: An American Tragedy (World Nutrition 2019;10(2):87-91).
It covers events through June 22, 2019. Since then:
- A survey of employees suggested that 80% would quit rather than move to Kansas.
- The House passed a bill that omitted funds to pay for moving the ERS to Kansas.
