ABOUT THE STANFORD INSTITUTE FOR ECONOMIC POLICY RESEARCH
Our mission at the Stanford Institute for Economic Policy
Research (SIEPR) is to support research that informs economic
policymaking while engaging future leaders and scholars. Our
affiliated faculty draw from each of Stanford's seven schools and
are committed to understanding the economic challenges,
opportunities, and policies affecting people around the world. We
support Stanford students and academic visitors from other leading
institutions, and host frequent events that bring together
scholars, policymakers, business leaders and journalists.
Many of our affiliates have served in government. They've
testified on Capitol Hill and in statehouses across the country.
They've advised businesses and politicians, and are routinely cited
in the media.
Our communications team is dedicated to distilling and
disseminating their research to ensure it reaches government
officials, members of the media, business executives and peer
