Dear Friend of CEPR,

It’s that time of year, the time when we ask all of our friends to support CEPR with a year-end donation. Thanks to all of you who have supported us throughout the years. We really do rely on your gifts to help fund our research, analysis, outreach, publications – everything we do.

When you donate to CEPR, you can be assured that your gift will be used wisely. Whether it’s calling for the UN to take responsibility for bringing cholera to Haiti or calling out the elites who use “fiscal cliff” scare stories to hide their true agenda, CEPR is there, out in front, providing fact-based research and well-reasoned analysis and pushing back on the mainstream media spin.

You can also be assured that your gift will be used effectively. This year we are especially proud to have once again been the most cost-effective think tank. CEPR ranked first in media hits per budget dollar of all major think tanks in 2011, based on an analysis of Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting’s 2011 think tank media citation rankings and organizational budgets.  CEPR also ranked first in web traffic per budget dollar in 2011, getting more than twice the number of hits as its closest competitor.

With the support of people like you, we have been, as The Guardian put it, “a professional thorn in the side of orthodoxy” for the past dozen years. Your gift will help us to continue to speak and write the economic truth for many more years to come. And we’ll do it more efficiently, too.

Best wishes for a healthy holiday season, and a very happy new year,

Mark, Dean and CEPR Staff (and dogs)
