Brent Kramer, PhDSenior Economist (Part-Time)
Brent is a lifelong activist on behalf of unions and working people. After a long career as a technician at Verizon (and its predecessor firms), Brent returned to school and completed his doctorate in economics at the City University of New York Graduate Center in 2008. During his summer break from school in 2005, he began working for FPI, and (with a short break) has been here since. He also teaches economics part-time in the City University system, attempting to dispel the myths of mainstream (conservative) economics for young people. As a retiree, Brent has not been interested in full-time work, so doing this work for an organization that does analysis and advocacy from the point of view of working people is a good fit.
