Your use of EquitableGrowth.org is subject to your compliance with the terms and conditions set forth in this Terms of Use agreement (“Terms of Use”), which supplement any additional guidelines or other terms posted by the Center in relation to specific site-related services or content. Although you can access and read portions of EquitableGrowth.org just by visiting the site, you must sign up to use certain EquitableGrowth.org features—such as receiving newsletters.

Please note that we reserve the right to update or modify the Terms of Use without advance notice by posting a revised Terms of Use to this website. Visitors to EquitableGrowth.org (“you”) can determine whether the Terms of Use has been modified since your last visit by checking the “Last updated” legend posted at the top of the Terms of Use. By using EquitableGrowth.org, you agree to be bound by the version of the Terms of Use then in effect. If at any point you no longer agree to the Terms of Use, please discontinue your use of EquitableGrowth.org. The Center may deny service to you at any time, including in the event you do not adhere to the Terms of Use.

About the Center; Purpose of EquitableGrowth.org

The Center is a nonpartisan, tax-exempt research and educational institute dedicated to accelerating cutting-edge research and analysis into whether and how structural changes in the U.S. economy, particularly related to economic inequality, affect economic growth.

As a tax-exempt organization, the Center is prohibited from supporting attempts to influence the outcome of any election for public office. Accordingly, with EquitableGrowth.org, the Center seeks to provide a forum to discuss policy—not to advance the interests of any particular political party or candidate for office.
