He is frequently cited in economics reporting in major media outlets, including The New York Times, The Washington Post, CNN, CNBC and NPR.

He received his doctorate in economics from the University of Michigan.
Baker has written several books, his latest being “Getting Back to Full Employment: A Better Bargain for Working People.” His other books include “The End of Loser Liberalism: Making Markets Progressive, Taking Economics Seriously” (MIT Press), in which Baker thinks through what we might gain if we took the ideological blinders off of basic economic principles, and “False Profits: Recovering from the Bubble Economy” (PoliPoint Press, 2010), a work about what caused – and how to fix – the current economic crisis.
Baker previously worked as a senior economist at the Economic Policy Institute and an assistant professor at Bucknell University. He has also worked as a consultant for the World Bank, the Joint Economic Committee of the U.S. Congress and the OECD’s Trade Union Advisory Council.
