The Laura and John Arnold foundation looks at economic inequality as one component of a broad-based strategy to identify and support evidence-based policies.
"When it comes to economic inequality, most funders have an angle. A range of liberal foundations, most notably Ford, not only see inequality as bad, but are backing policies they think might curb the problem, including an expansion of labor rights, more progressive tax policies, and tougher controls on Wall Street. Meanwhile, a host of conservative funders have long pushed back against regulation of the economy and redistributive policies.
"Then there’s the Laura and John Arnold foundation, which has recently arrived in this space with lots of questions (and money) but, as yet, no set policy agenda."-- David Callahan, Inside Philanthropy
