You may be familiar with CEPR’s economic research. But did you know that there is a program at CEPR that works to ensure that political appointees are focused on serving the public interest, rather than personal professional advancement?
Practically alone in Washington DC, the Revolving Door Project (RDP)—based at CEPR—applies pressure on both Democrats and Republicans to administer the executive branch on behalf of the common interest rather than personal interest. From Wall Street insiders seeking jobs in a potential Hillary Clinton Administration to Steven Mnuchin, Mick Mulvaney, Wilbur Ross, and the rest of President Trump’s ethically compromised team, the Revolving Door Project has a proven track record of identifying and scrutinizing the selfish.
“The deepest rules of our rigged economy are usually written by people who hold key but obscure jobs within the executive branch. From the Treasury Department and the Federal Reserve to the CFPB, FTC, and SEC, the Revolving Door Project highlights corrupt personnel while pushing for appointees committed to fighting for the public interest rather than cashing in.”
— Jeff Hauser, Director of the Revolving Door Project
