We explore the scientific foundations of the interaction between individuals, business, and government to improve well-being for individuals and society.

Research Areas

Innovation and Entrepreneurship

Health, Wealth, and Human Capital

Individuals are empowered to pursue their dreams of economic betterment. Society is open to change, inquiry, commerce, and trade. Public policies support lifelong learning and help to fuel human capital accumulation and economic growth across the income distribution.

Business, Government, and Civil Society

Institutions encourage cooperative solutions over conflict. Policymakers use legislation mindful of freedom of choice, economic efficiency, and fiscal responsibility. Civil society plays a central role as a source of protection and support for the least advantaged.
