In Case You Missed It...


This week at CBPP, we focused on housing, full employment, and the economy.

  • On housing, Peggy Bailey and Anna Bailey noted a proposed rule from the Trump Administration would perpetuate racist and discriminatory housing practices.
  • On full employment, Jared Bernstein and Keith Bentele pointed out the benefits of high-pressure labor markets to the labor supply of lower-paid workers.
  • On the economy, we updated our backgrounder on how many weeks of unemployment compensation are available.
