Overview
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 support of the Roosevelt Society project  
Grounded in the legacy of Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt, the Roosevelt Institute is both a leading economic and social policy think tank and home to scholars, public intellectuals, policy experts, and one of the nation’s largest student policy networks. Through research, advocacy, and communications, the institute has helped change the conversation around power and inequality, and drive increasing recognition of the need to rebalance power in the structures of our economy and democracy. This grant supports the Roosevelt Society project that will build an ideological home for the next generation of leaders in political economy. (Substrategy: Executive Branch)
