The Center for Economic and Policy Research (CEPR) was established in 1999 to promote democratic debate on the most important economic and social issues that affect people's lives. In order for citizens to effectively exercise their voices in a democracy, they should be informed about the problems and choices that they face. CEPR is committed to presenting issues in an accurate and understandable manner, so that the public is better prepared to choose among the various policy options. Toward this end, CEPR conducts both professional research and public education. The professional research is oriented towards filling important gaps in the understanding of particular economic and social problems, or the impact of specific policies. 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 exactly what is at stake in major policy debates. An informed public should be able to choose policies that lead to an improving quality of life, both for people within the United States and around the world. CEPR was co-founded by economists Dean Baker and Mark Weisbrot. 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.   EXPERTISE CEPR strives to fill important gaps in the public's understanding of economic and social policies. We aim to present information and analysis in an accurate and understandable manner so that people can effectively exercise their voices in a democracy.   International Issues -Europe -Globalization/Trade -International Monetary Fund -Latin America and the Caribbean   Economic Policy -Economic Crisis & Recovery -Financial Speculation Tax -Intellectual Property & Patents -Labor and Jobs   Domestic Issues -Education -Energy/Environment -Federal Budget/Taxes -Health Care -Housing -Inequality & Poverty -Social Security & Retirement
