Financial literacy is essential to creating sound public policies. Research and teaching at the Julis-Rabinowitz Center for Public Policy and Finance at the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs focuses on using in-depth knowledge of financial markets to improve the design and implementation of policy. Endowed by Mitch Julis ’77 and named in honor of his parents and grandparents, the center is a hub of study across multiple disciplines that intersect with public policy and finance -- including economics, operations research, political science, history, and ethics.
“The opportunity for our students to be exposed to different points of view and to participate in interdisciplinary research at the nexus between finance and public policy will be of enormous benefit to them and more broadly to the financial system.”
—Yacine Ait-Sahalia, the Otto A. Hack ’03 Professor of Finance, professor of economics, and director of the Bendheim Center for Finance
