Spotlight on: Mike Konczal


Roosevelt Institute Fellow Mike Konczal hasn't been resting on his laurels since he wrote Next New Deal's most widely read post ever in April, in which he highlighted findings from a new paper that exposed serious flaws in Reinhart-Rogoff's debt research. Since then, his Rortybomb blog has kicked off lively debates about the value of liberal "wonk blogging" and the nature of the conservative reform movement.

Konczal also writes a weekly column at the Washington Post's Wonkblog, where he has recently looked at the future of financial reform, how a Universal Basic Income could work, and the Federal Reserve's battle with austerity, among other topics.

Konczal will host an event focused on the implementation of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act later this year.
