Carnegie-Rochester Conference Series

The Carnegie-Rochester Conference on Public Policy was initiated in the early 1970s by the Bradley Policy Research Center at the William E. Simon School of Business Administration at the University of Rochester and the Center for the Study of Public Policy at Carnegie Mellon University. New York University's Stern School of Business later joined as a conference host institution. The principal objectives of the semi-annual conferences are to stimulate policy relevance and empirical research in economic science, to facilitate the exchange of scientific ideas among analysts with different perspectives and approaches, and to generate greater understanding by academic economists of practitioners' environments. Each conference has a particular theme with papers prepared by leading scholars with relevant expertise. Participants are united by their interest in the issues discussed and by their conviction that analysis, evidence, and informed discussion have lasting effects on the public and its institutions. The conference receives financial support from the National Science Foundation and from its host institutions.
