How society chooses to address today’s major public policy challenges will fundamentally shape the future of the U.S. economy. The mission of the Center for Business and Public Policy at the University of Illinois is to promote rigorous research about how market forces and public policy shape one another, and to communicate these findings through innovative teaching and public engagement activities.
