Carnegie-Rochester-NYU Public Policy Conference

The Carnegie-Rochester-New York University Conference on Public Policy is a semi-annual event occurring in April on a rotating basis at the University of Rochester or New York University, and in November at Carnegie Mellon University.

The principal objectives of the conferences are to:

  • Stimulate policy relevance and empirical research in economic science
  • Encourage interchange of scientific ideas among analysts with different approaches
  • Generate greater understanding by academic economists of practitioner's environments

Each conference is organized around a particular theme or topic with papers prepared by leading scholars with expertise in the area. Participants are united by their interest in the issues discussed, and by their belief that analysis, evidence, and informed discussion have lasting effects on the public and its institutions.
