Overview
Over the past 30 years, economic inequality in the United States has returned to levels last seen in the 1920s. The Washington Center for Equitable Growth, a new research and grantmaking organization, was founded in 2013 to accelerate cutting-edge analysis into whether and how structural changes in the U.S. economy, particularly related to inequality, affect economic growth. Core to its mission is building a stronger bridge between academics and policymakers to ensure that new research is relevant, accessible, and informative to the policymaking process. The center will elevate what is known from currently available research, while simultaneously encouraging new investigation into the role of inequality — and the policies that address it — in our economy.

The Washington Center for Equitable Growth is a research and grantmaking organization that accelerates analysis into whether and how structural changes in the US economy affect growth. Funding from the Hewlett Foundation will allow the organization to continue its work, including hosting a convening of scholars. The convening will help identify the infrastructure of scholars investigating alternatives to neoliberalism; identify core themes and arguments in scholarship; and narrow disciplinary boundaries.
