Our funding interests are organized around the following four drivers of economic growth: the macroeconomy, human capital and the labor market, innovation, and institutions. We consider proposals that investigate the consequences of economic inequality as well as group dimensions of inequality; the causes of inequality to the extent that understanding these causal pathways will help us identify and understand key channels through which inequality might affect growth; and the ways in which public policies affect the relationship between inequality and growth.
