About the Center

“Boom-bust cycles and their adverse social consequences are going to continue to occur unless policymakers develop a better understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of our financial system and can formulate appropriate solutions.”  — Mitchell Julis ’77 (2011)

History

Established in 2011, the Julis-Rabinowitz Center for Public Policy & Finance at Princeton’s Woodrow Wilson School focuses on expanding knowledge about the interactions between financial markets and the macroeconomy, with the aim of improving the design and implementation of public policies. Princeton University gratefully acknowledges the Julis-Rabinowtiz Family for the founding gift that made the Center possible, as well as the generous support from:

PHILIP D. BENNETT *79

MARK R. GENENDER ’87 AND FAMILY

NOAH GOTTDIENER ’78

DEAN N. MENEGAS ‘83 S82

Mission

An in-depth understanding of both financial markets and macroeconomics is required to design and implement sound public policies. We promote research and teaching in these fields to inspire thought leaders and policymakers to work together to prevent financial crises. The Center offers unique opportunities for collaboration among students, researchers, financial industry professionals, and public policy practitioners that include an annual conference, public talks, a visitors program, research projects, course offerings, and funding opportunities for Princeton University students.

  • We inform and educate policymakers, both current and aspiring, about the interactions between financial markets and the real economy.

  • We host events bringing together experts from the public sector, academia, and the financial industry.

  • We engage undergraduate and graduate students through mentorship, critical discourse, and grants for internships and scholarly travel.
