Czech Business Weekly Praises CERGE-EI’s Achievements

4 April, 2012

CERGE-EI's faculty and the IDEA project earned high accolades from the Czech business weekly Profit in its article on the most influential economists in the country. According to the magazine's custom-made index, Jan Švejnar is the third most publicly visible Czech economist. Among academic economists (ranked according to the RePEc index) CERGE-EI dominates with six faculty members and two graduates in the top ten.

Profit reserved special praise for the IDEA project which it described as the only independent policy oriented think tank in the country. While bemoaning the lack of other similar centers dedicated to evidence-based research and policy making, the article extolled IDEA’s achievements in analyzing and evaluating the government’s current tax and pension reforms and in developing an original proposal for economic reforms.
