A Look Back at 2022
December 22, 2022
And the policies and ideas that shaped it.
The Roosevelt Rundown features our top stories of the week.
Roosevelt Ideas that Made a Difference in 2022
This year, Rooseveltian ideas made headway on a number of fronts. Roosevelt Institute research and advocacy were instrumental in some amazing economic policy wins, including legislation that, if implemented well, will invest in the US—and an economy and democracy that work for everyone—for decades to come.
Here are some suggested holiday reads from our authors on economic governance, climate, and inflation that will continue to resonate into 2023.
