To support a U.S. Programs Board initiated grant to provide project support for its economic systems and inequality research projects. The projects seek, via high level fellows’ research, analysis, thinking, and strategic communications, to amplify solutions to address economic inequality and its consequences, particularly in terms of financial systems reform and the “future of work.” The Future of Work project seeks to develop ideas and policies that advance strong standards for working conditions in the United States; the Future of Financial Reform project explores regulation that will stabilize the economy and restrain financial abuse; and the Economic Media Project, a strategic alliance of economic policy, communications, and public opinion research groups, expands the communications capacity of leading economists who seek to expand the volume and quality of mainstream media coverage against austerity measures that further disadvantage low- and moderate-income Americans.
