Trade Adjustment Assistance Act evaluation released

The Department of Labor's evaluation of the services and benefits provided under the Trade Adjustment Assistance Act has finally been released.

I don't want to take away the fun of reading it, but if you want to form a prior about the findings, the following information might be relevant:

1. The report was released about nine months after the policy debate around reauthorizing the act.

2. The report was released at 5 PM on the Friday before the inauguration and Martin Luther King day.

3. The abstract on the DOL website says nothing about the sign of the findings.

Full disclosure: I consulted on the evaluation.
