Our vision is to build up a research and teaching Program in economics and public policy that has the following characteristics:
- Versatile application of analytical and empirical tools on a full range of public policy issues, local, regional, and global;
- No preconceptions about the advantages of the free market or the advantages of government intervention;
- Completely free of dogmas;
- Recognizing the contribution of other disciplines to analysis and making an effort to take advantage of their insights as far as possible.
