Inspired by the legacy of Franklin and Eleanor, the Roosevelt Institute reimagines America by bringing together thousands of stakeholders to rethink and reshape everything from local policy to federal legislation, orienting toward a new economic and political system: one built by many for the good of all. Support from the Hewlett Foundation will allow the Roosevelt Institute to examine questions regarding neoliberalism, its consequences, and its critics. This project will develop a framework to organize critiques and alternatives to neoliberalism, including deep examinations of several topics, such as globalization, technology, and labor markets.

Grants to this Grantee
for general operating support
The Roosevelt Institute works to advance an economic agenda that puts families and workers first — one that tackles concentrated wealth and power, strengthens the countervailing power of workers and communities, and reimagines public power as essential to supporting economic security and shared prosperity in ways that markets, when left alone, never will. This work is especially critical in this moment of crisis, which calls for both immediate relief and for long-term structural solutions. By combining thoughtful research and analysis with strategic communications and partnerships, Roosevelt develops and promotes new economic thinking and policy ideas aimed at building toward a more resilient, just, and sustainable future.
for the climate finance regulatory project
The Roosevelt Institute’s climate economics program builds support among climate and economic policy groups for regulatory policies that shape private investment in large-scale rapid decarbonization of the U.S. economy, while building good jobs and equity. A key plank of this program focuses on regulatory rules and structures — including SEC reforms, Federal Reserve policy, and carbon accounting rules — that can deter private investment in carbon-intensive activities and promote private investment in green industry.
