Program 1

Four Freedoms Center

The Four Freedoms Center is a think tank that seeks to foster a rigorous debate about progressive policies and values and to deploy their strongest proponents in the public sphere. Its Fellows Program includes influential thinkers and analysts such as Nobel Prize-winning economist Joseph Stiglitz and Robert Johnson, former chief economist to the Senate Banking Committee, and its work has informed the consumer protection efforts of Elizabeth Warren. The New Deal 2.0 blog gives these fellows and other contributors a platform to develop their ideas and share their insights on the economic crisis, financial reform, and other issues.
