Overview
The Center for Economic and Policy Research (CEPR) is a think tank established in 1999 to promote democratic debate on the most important economic and social issues that affect people’s lives. For over two decades CEPR has used data-driven research to challenge assumptions and identify problems emerging from the neoliberal status quo. CEPR promotes informed debate on the social and economic trends that define our society, helping develop a new “common sense” about how the economy works. CEPR’s research offers a new framework for how we think about wealth inequality, public investment, and worker empowerment. CEPR has documented how the rules governing markets have contributed enormously to the rise in inequality, shining a light on the ways in which the system is rigged and offering policy solutions to level the playing field.

Grants to this Grantee
for the Revolving Door Project  
The Revolving Door Project scrutinizes the executive branch to ensure officeholders serve the public interest, rather than work to entrench corporate power or seek personal advancement. Many of the rules governing our economy are written by the executive branch outside the purview of civil society. And many of that branch’s most consequential decisions relate to the enforcement (or not) of longstanding legal limits on corporate power. The project educates civil society to counteract the advantage that Wall Street and corporate America have in this opaque process. Only with progressive scrutiny will the executive branch write and enforce rules that shift the economy away from rent extraction and toward greater economic equality.
