Event description

Description

Join CEPR to commemorate 20 years as “a professional thorn in the side of orthodoxy” with a celebration featuring food, drink, and a special message from CEPR Board member Danny Glover.

While CEPR has been providing accessible, fact-based research that explains economic concepts over the last 20 years, on October 29th we’d like to look ahead to the future. Help us highlight our history and celebrate CEPR's contributions to the labor movement, academia, and the broader fight for social justice.

Read about our history here, and see our website for more details on the event and our incredible speakers.
