New York, NY
The Roosevelt Institute is a leading economic and social policy think tank that works to move the Unites States toward a new economy and democracy by the people, for the people. Roosevelt produces research and analysis to help policymakers, press, and advocacy partners draw connections between a well-functioning democracy and economic inclusion, highlighting how structural racism upholds an economic system that transfers wealth and power from public to private ownership.
The institute’s 2019 report New Rules for the 21st Century lays out regulatory and policy changes to curb concentrated wealth and political influence, strengthen the power of workers and communities, and reclaim civic power. Its far-reaching impact provides the framework for future research on the financialization of the U.S. economy, corporate concentration, and how public investment can grow the U.S. economy and keep the private market in check.
