About the Grantee
Grants to this Grantee
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.
