The Roosevelt Institute
Roosevelt Institute
was initially created in 1987 through the merger of the Eleanor Roosevelt
Eleanor Roosevelt
Institute and the Franklin D. Roosevelt Four Freedoms
Four Freedoms
Foundation.[6] In 2007, the Roosevelt Institute
Roosevelt Institute
merged with the Roosevelt Institution, now known as the Roosevelt Institute
Roosevelt Institute
Campus Network.[7] It remains the non-profit partner to the government-run Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library and Museum, the nation's first presidential library. In 2009, it expanded its mission with the launch of the Four Freedoms
Four Freedoms
Center, a progressive policy think tank, and an economic policy blog.

Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt, November 1935.

Felicia Wong, formerly of the Democracy Alliance, became the organization's President and CEO in March 2012.[8] In 2015, the Roosevelt Institute
Roosevelt Institute
was added to the Democracy Alliance's list of recommended funding targets.[9] Other donors to the Roosevelt Institute include the Ford Foundation, the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, the MacArthur Foundation, and the Bauman Foundation.[10] Board of directors[edit] The Board of Directors of The Roosevelt Institute
Roosevelt Institute
includes: Phoebe Roosevelt,[11] Nancy Roosevelt Ireland,[12] Anna Eleanor Roosevelt,[13] Donald Fowler,[14] Adam Connor,[15] Paul Sparrow,[16] Benjamin Barnes,[17] Kate Brandt,[18] and Jas Johl[19] Activities[edit] Joseph Stiglitz
Joseph Stiglitz
is the Roosevelt Institute's chief economist. In 2015, a report authored by Stiglitz offered an indictment of 35 years of U.S. economic policies. The report was expected to influence the economic agenda of Hillary Clinton, whose economic team has ties to the Roosevelt Institute.[3][20] Elizabeth Warren
Elizabeth Warren
and Bill deBlasio joined Stiglitz at the press conference to announce the report.[21][22] The 37 policy recommendations in the Stiglitz report include progressive taxation and an expansion of government programs.[23] Time called the Stiglitz report "a roadmap for what many progressives would like to see happen policy wise over the next four years."[24] According to the Washington Post, the Institute's plan is "firmly rooted in the conviction that more government can solve most of America's economic challenges. It is a plan seemingly designed to rally liberals, enrage free-market economists and push a certain presumptive presidential nominee to the left."[22] References[edit]
