NEW YORK, NY — The Roosevelt Institute is pleased to announce its newest senior fellow, Professor Beverly Moran. One of the foremost experts in US tax law, Moran will join Roosevelt’s Corporate Power program area, which is focused on building a more equitable economy through innovation and public value rather than extraction of private wealth for the few. As a senior fellow, Moran will provide strategic guidance and expert advice on the Institute’s research and advocacy efforts to make the tax code more racially and economically just.
“Beverly has been ahead of the times in so many of the aspects of tax policy that matter,” said Niko Lusiani, director of corporate power. “We are thrilled to count on her as a thought partner toward making the tax code more equitable and democratic.”
“As an expert on tax policy, I have long observed the obstacles standing in the way of all Americans achieving ‘the American dream.’ The US tax system is partly responsible for these gaps, and the Roosevelt Institute has long understood this,” said Moran. “I could not be more thrilled to continue my thinking at the Roosevelt Institute and to collaborate with the Corporate Power program.”
Moran joins other distinguished senior fellows at the Roosevelt Institute, including William Darity Jr., Darrick Hamilton, J.W. Mason, Saule Omarova, Lenore Palladino, and Joseph Stiglitz.
