The Garden State Initiative presents The GSI Briefing Podcast, hosted by Regina Egea.

Episode #6: Regina is joined by Dan Geltrude to discuss several important financial topics outlined in the GSI report entitled: Retirees and New Jersey: How We Can Be Perfect Together.

The report highlights factors and policy recommendations including healthcare, income taxes, property taxes and public transportation gaps.

Dan took part in GSI’s first Economic Forum in 2018, and Regina and Dan discuss how things have changed since then, and what policies other states have adopted to attract more individuals and businesses.
