Maryland Center on Economic Policy

About the Maryland Center on Economic Policy

The Maryland Center on Economic Policy advances innovative policy ideas to foster broad prosperity and help their state be the standard-bearer for responsible public policy. They engage in research, analysis, strategic communications, public education, and grassroots alliances promoting robust debate and greater public awareness of the policy choices Maryland residents face together.

Every Marylander should be able to achieve their full potential in a healthy economy that offers a widely shared, rising standard of living.

MDCEP believes that:

  • Government that is open, accountable, and responsive has an active role to play to help people reach their full potential;
  • Public debate benefits from evidence-based research; and
  • Maryland should lead the way with fiscally sound policies that support working families, thriving businesses and neighborhoods, and a strong social sector.
