America: The Owner’s Manual

Senator Bob Graham and Chris Hand have co-authored a new book, America, the Owner’s Manual: You Can Fight City Hall – and Win, which features a chapter written by Commonwealth.

Chapter 2 of the book, “Just the Facts, Ma’am,” tells the story of how policymakers at the state and federal level trusted Commonwealth (at the time, known as D2D Fund) to provide solutions that are data-driven, bi-partisan, practical and effective in order to build financial security.

The chapter highlights Commonwealth's work to introduce Prize-Linked Savings (PLS) enabling legislation in the United States. 22 states now allow PLS products, including Massachussets which passed enabling legislation in October, 2016.

America, the Owner’s Manual is “a timely, hands-on guide demonstrating how citizens can bring about real change in their communities.” You can read more about, and purchase, the book at Amazon.
