Organization Description:  CEPR was established in 1999 to promote democratic debate on the most critical economic and social issues that affect people’s lives. For citizens to effectively exercise their voices in a democracy, they must be informed about the problems and choices that they face. An informed public should then be able to choose policies that lead to improving the quality of life for people within the United States and around the world.

Toward this end, CEPR conducts professional research and public education so that the public is better prepared to choose among the various policy options. Professional research is oriented toward filling important gaps in understanding particular economic and social problems or the impact of specific policies, both domestically and globally. The public education portion of CEPR’s mission is to present the findings of professional research, both by CEPR and others, in a manner that allows broad segments of the public to know precisely what is at stake in major policy debates. As part of its public education initiative, CEPR utilizes research findings and analysis to challenge the myths, assumptions, policies, and institutions that perpetuate economic and social inequality.

CEPR’s founding scholars include Dean Baker, Mark Weisbrot, and Robert Pollin, Professor of Economics, University of Massachusetts.  Our Advisory Board includes Nobel Laureate economists Robert Solow and Joseph Stiglitz; Janet Gornick, Professor at the CUNY Graduate School and Director of the Luxembourg Income Study; and Richard Freeman, Professor of Economics at Harvard University.

CEPR is an equal opportunity employer that considers applicants for all positions regardless of race, color, religion, creed, gender, national origin, age, disability, marital or veteran status, sexual orientation, or any legally protected status. Women and minorities are strongly encouraged to apply.
