The Minneapolis Fed announced a new cohort of 21 visiting scholars selected to conduct research while in residence at the Opportunity & Inclusive Growth Institute.
“The Visiting Scholar Program is a vital channel for bringing new ideas and insights into the Institute’s work and, by extension, the Fed System,” said Institute Director Abigail Wozniak. “Given the ongoing pandemic and related economic uncertainty, it is critical that we continue our work to understand how to enhance economic opportunity and well-being for all. Institute scholars play a key role in that effort.”
This class of academics was selected because their research contributes to understanding how to increase economic opportunity for all Americans. Collectively, the scholars use a variety of empirical methods and theoretical perspectives to answer research questions.
"We are excited about this new cohort,” said Assistant Director of Inequality Research Alessandra Fogli. “Each scholar is a leader in their field, and their broad interests bring diversity to our research agenda.”
