"CERGE-EI has had a transformative effect on teaching and learning about economics. If we had another five such organizations in equally key parts of the world, the prospects for global economics theory, empirics and policy would be greatly enhanced..."

Simon Johnson, Professor, MIT; Former Director of Research, IMF

CERGE-EI's mission:
