Check out EPI’s new blog, Working Economics

Today, EPI launched its new blog, Working Economics.  The blog will enable our experts to provide vital and timely economic analysis and commentary on policies that affect working Americans.

Intended for both those well-versed in economics and those simply interested in economic policy and discourse, Working Economics will be an essential nexus for engaging a greater number of people in economic conversations.  Finally, Working Economics will continue EPI’s mission of advancing policies that improve the quality of life for America’s workers and their families.
