CEP US Election Analysis

[Uncle Sam]

During the 2012 US presidential election, CEP published a series of US Election Analyses


The series provides non-technical, evidence-based and politically neutral introductions to the main economic issues facing the American people: taxes, spending and public debt; economic recovery and policy uncertainty; healthcare reform; and inequality and opportunity. As the economically largest and most powerful nation on the planet, what happens in the United States always has a profound influence on the rest of the world.
