Andrew Fieldhouse is a fellow at The Century Foundation, primarily writing about U.S. federal tax and budget policy and the role of fiscal policy on economic recovery. Andrew is also pursuing an economics doctorate at Cornell University. He previously worked as a federal budget policy analyst for TCF and the Economic Policy Institute, and was formerly an assistant budget analyst and research assistant with the House Budget Committee.

Andrew’s areas of research and interest include public finance, macroeconomic stabilization policy, public investment, fiscal federalism, and political economy. He has written extensively on the impact of contractionary fiscal policy impeding U.S. economic recovery, as well as the relationships between tax policy and economic growth, income inequality growth, and fiscal sustainability. Andrew coauthored Investing in America’s Economy: A Budget Blueprint for Economic Recovery and Fiscal Responsibility, a long-term progressive budget proposal by Our Fiscal Security—a partnership of Demos, EPI, and TCF—and helped EPI develop two subsequent adaptations of the budget blueprint for the Peter G. Peterson Foundations’ 2011 and 2012 Fiscal Solutions Initiatives. He also assisted the Congressional Progressive Caucus in developing, scoring, and modeling their budget alternatives for fiscal years 2012-2014. Andrew has provided frequent commentary on budgetary and economic debates, and has appeared as a guest on CNN, PBS Nightly Business Report, C-SPAN, CNBC, Fox News, Fox Business News, the BBC, and Al Jazeera English. He holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Economics and Political Science from Swarthmore College.
