The Center for Economic and Policy Research (CEPR) is an economic policy think-tank, co-founded by economists Dean Baker and Mark Weisbrot, and is based in Washington, D.C.[2]

History[edit]

The Center for Economic and Policy Research (CEPR), founded in 1999, is an independent, nonpartisan think tank, which produces economic research on topics that affect people's lives to contribute to the public debate (social security, healthcare, the national budget), and internationally (global economy, International Monetary Fund, and Latin America policy).[3]

Policy positions[edit]

CEPR has been described as both progressive[4] and left-leaning.[5][6][7] CEPR is based in Washington, DC.

United States[edit]

Affordable Care Act[edit]

CEPR supports the Affordable Care Act stating that it is "a family-friendly policy" and that the policy "has allowed thousands of workers to voluntarily reduce their work hours to care for children or elderly parents, or to explore new opportunities". Despite these noted changes in the percentage of workers employed on a part-time basis, CEPR concluded that such statistics were not sufficient to make any overall judgments on the health of the labor market.[8][9]

Employment[edit]

CEPR backs alongside the Economic Policy Institute the Full Employment Caucus, a group on United States House officials that advocate for full employment in the United States.[10]

Minimum wage[edit]

A 2014 study by CEPR shows that 13 states that increased their minimum wage had an average payroll of 0.99% compared to 0.68% in other states, though the CEPR stated the analysis was "far from scientific".[11]

Taxes[edit]

In a 2014 report in Fortune, CEPR co-founder Dean Baker suggested that according to poll findings, many citizens of the United States did not notice a 2% increase in their Social Security tax.[12]

Haiti[edit]

The CEPR created a blog called "Haiti: Relief and Reconstruction Watch" on their website to keep watch on what has been taking place in Haiti following the 2010 Haiti earthquake.[13]

Venezuela[edit]

CEPR has published at length about Venezuela and has been described as supporting Hugo Chávez and the Venezuelan government[14][15][16] with some of the data presented by CEPR along with Weisbrot being accused of using slanted information to support the Venezuelan government.[17][18][19][20] CEPR staff members such as Mark Weisbrot and Deborah James have attended pro-Venezuelan government events alongside other activists such as Daniel Kovalik.[21][22][23][24][25] Venezuelanalysis.com, a pro-Bolivarian website, has also used CEPR as their only source of economic indicators for their website since 2007.[26][27]

In a July 2014 article titled "How to fix Venezuela's troubled exchange rate" written for Fortune magazine, Weisbrot attributes many of Venezuela's economic problems to their current monetary policies such as the government's exchange rate system.[28] In a June 2016 article titled "A U.S. Policy of Non-intervention in Venezuela Would Be a Welcome Change" written for the New York Times, Weisbrot blamed the U.S. for many of Venezuela's economic problems: "Washington has caused enormous damage to Venezuela in its relentless pursuit of 'regime change' for the last 15 years."[29]

Personnel[edit]

CEPR's staff includes Ha-Joon Chang[30] and Eileen Appelbaum.[31][32] Other staff members include John Schmitt, Deborah James and Alexander Main.[33][34]

CEPR contributors include Advisory Board Members Joseph Stiglitz and Robert Solow.[35]

As of 2017, CEPR's Board of Directors includes:[36]

Julian Bond served as CEPR's Board Chair in the past.[37]
