The Minneapolis Fed announced a new cohort of 16 visiting scholars selected to conduct research while in residence at the Opportunity & Inclusive Growth Institute.
“During our remote work period, we learned a lot about how to keep our far-flung group of visiting scholars connected to our local researchers and one another. We’re looking forward to building on those lessons as we bring our scholars back for in-person visits,” said Institute Director Abigail Wozniak. “We’re fortunate to have scholars in our new cohort working on a range of questions, from legal system outcomes and their spillovers to other markets, to historical determinants of wealth in the U.S., to models of housing and family formation and ingredients of long-run growth.”
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.
“This group is incredibly talented and diverse, bringing a range of methods and perspectives to our research community,” said Assistant Director of Inequality Research Alessandra Fogli. “We are especially thrilled to resume in-person interaction and to work together to further our understanding of inequality issues and design policies to improve access to economic opportunities and promote inclusion.”
Since 2017, the Institute has hosted a total of 98 visiting scholars in five cohorts. The following scholars make up the Institute’s sixth cohort.
