We wanted to be sure that you saw the latest paper by CEPR Co-Founder and Senior Economist Dean Baker, “The Housing Bubble and the Great Recession: Ten Years Later.” We released the report on the 10th anniversary of the peak of the financial crisis. Had the powers that be listened to Dean — who first warned about the growth of the bubble in 2002 — millions of people could have avoided financial ruin.
And what’s amazing is that there are STILL those who say that “No One” saw it coming. Thankfully, Dean, aka “No One”, is still around to call them out.
This is why we need CEPR’s work now, more than ever. In a world where fake news reigns, CEPR’s factual and timely research and analysis is the perfect antidote. Consider making a donation to CEPR to ensure that we continue to fight for economic justice.
CEPR recently received a message from a supporter thanking Dean for his work. He came across Dean’s work in the early 2000s, and he took actions that spared his family from losing everything when the recession hit. We want this for everyone. With your help, we can continue to provide the research and analysis that champions an economy that works for everyone, not just the elites.
