Join Adam Andrzejewski of OpenTheBooks.com on Wednesday, January 23, from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm LIVE from The Heartland Institute. He will deliver a talk titled "How Posting All Public Spending Online Can Transform U.S. Public Policy." "Sunlight is said to be the best of disinfectants; electric light the most efficient policeman," wrote Louis Brandeis in 1914. Today, the Freedom of Information Act and internet make it possible to post online all spending at the federal, state, and local levels. This kind of radical transparency can transform U.S. public policy. Today, OpenTheBooks.com is the largest private repository of U.S. public-sector spending. With Honorary Chairman Dr. Tom Coburn, the mission of OpenTheBooks.com is to post "every dime, online, in real time." OpenTheBooks.com has captured 5 billion government-spending records, including nearly all disclosed federal government spending since 2000; 48 of 50 state checkbooks; and 21.7 million public employee salary and pension records across America. OpenTheBooks.com exposed the $20 million luxury-art procurement program at the Department of Veterans Affairs, which forced a public apology from the V.A. Secretary and the adoption of new rules to stop the abuse (2016). In 2017, the group literally mapped the swamp in their oversight report, Mapping The Swamp, A Study of the Administrative State. Recently, the group showcased 1.7 million highly compensated public employees who earned $100,000+ costing taxpayers $1 trillion (2018) from nearly every level of government across America. In Fall 2018, OpenTheBooks launched a public policy campaign in The Wall Street Journal and USA Today urging President Donald Trump to declare “War on Waste.” Their efforts helped galvanize Trump’s order to cut five-percent of agency spending. The group's aggressive transparency and forensic auditing of government spending has led to the assembly of grand juries, indictments, successful prosecutions, congressional briefings and hearings, subpoenas, and Government Accountability Office (GAO) audits, administrative policy changes, federal legislation, and much more.

On December 5, 2018, The Heartland Institute and Solidarity - the Polish labor union led by Lech Walesa that began the dismantling of the Iron Curtain - signed a joint communique pushing back at the climate alarmism of the United Nations. Solidarity requested what turned into nearly three hours of presentations and Q&A on the latest climate science and critiques of the UN's policy prescriptions to combat global warming. Duly impressed, Solidarity asked Heartland to join them in a communique they submitted to COP24 in their home country. See more details here: https://www.heartland.org/news-opinion/news/press-release-solidarity-heartland-institute-sign-historic-climate-communique-at-cop24 This video, taken after the signing ceremony in Solidarity's Katowice office, includes statements from Jaroslaw Grzesik, Chairman of Secretariat, Mining and Energy of Solidarity; Dominik Kolorz, president of the Silesian Region of Solidarity; and Heartland Institute Senior Fellow for Environment and Energy Policy James Taylor, who represented the organization at COP24.
