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.

for general operating support
The Roosevelt Institute works to advance an economic agenda 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, the institute develops and promotes new economic thinking and policy ideas aimed at building toward a more resilient, just, and sustainable future.
