For Support Of The Law And Political Economy Initiative

Law and Political Economy at Columbia is an initiative to produce foundational scholarship on the ways the law shapes economic order, and how both law and the economy can better serve democracy. Produced by leading scholars and paired with public lectures, a series of volumes will address the following questions: How does the law create value and distribute power under financial capitalism? What is the role of the state in creating money, and how can a clearer understanding of currency shape legal change? How do concentration and market dominance arise in an information-driven economy? How much democracy is possible in large, distracted societies facing complex problems? New approaches to these questions will help to anchor an affirmative vision of legal and political order beyond neoliberalism among scholars, administrators, judges, and legislators.

for the Center for Political Economy  

The Center for Political Economy at Columbia University aims to identify and advance the most promising post-2008 developments within economics, and promote a new political economy, distinctive for our time, with an institutional, cross-disciplinary orientation connecting economics to law, political science, sociology, public health, engineering, and data science, with philosophical underpinnings. The center will gather initiatives and individual scholarly programs already underway, helping faculty span disciplines and fields of inquiry while anchoring a series of investigations into fundamental topics. The center will also seed new research, scholarly publications, and policy outputs and foster curricular materials that will feed into textbooks and coursework. At the core of its work, the center will develop idea labs concerned with such vital areas as firm size and antitrust, work and labor, money and finance, climate change, and inequalities. This grant provides general (program) support for the Center for Political Economy at Columbia University.

This grant is aligned with the Cyber Initiative’s overall strategy to cultivate a field that develops thoughtful, multidisciplinary solutions to complex cyber challenges.
