The Princeton Program in Public Finance, established in 2018, is dedicated to producing research and training students, post-docs, and pre-doctoral research assistants in the area of public finance. While we often focus on traditional core topics of public finance like taxation and government spending programs, we are also interested in how public finance interacts with labor economics, political economy, and urban economics. We sponsor seminars, conferences, and visitors with the goal of creating a vibrant and inclusive intellectual community.
