25th Anniversary Report, 2009–2011
Throughout its 25-year history, the Levy Economics Institute has maintained its commitment to independent thinking and the belief that economics can and should make a profound contribution to improving the human condition. The purpose of all our activities and research is to serve the wider policymaking community in the United States and throughout the world.
Our 25th Anniversary Report details the Institute’s contributions—through its conferences, seminars, and publications—to the debate surrounding such fundamental public policy issues as the sustainability of long-term economic growth, unemployment, income and wealth inequality, systemic risks in the financial sector, and the deteriorating international trade environment. It also outlines our latest initiatives, including partnerships with other leading public policy institutions, pilot programs abroad, and the newly digitized Minsky Archive.
