It is a central tool for economics and the social sciences, poses challenging research questions in mathematics, and is applied across a wide variety of fields, including computer science, neuroscience, philosophy, and biology.

We are pleased to announce the official launch of VoxChina.org. VoxChina is an independent, non-partisan and nonprofit platform we initiated with the support from a group of experienced and accomplished economists serving on the Advisory Board and the Editorial Board. In particular, Department of Economics is one of its founding institutional sponsors. The mission of VoxChina is to be the bridge on economic issues between China and the rest of the world by providing informed analysis on the state of the Chinese economy and insights for reform challenges facing China today, and by analyzing the impact of the development in the rest of the world economies on China.

VoxChina aims to fulfill its mission mainly by propagating and promoting research-based policy analysis on Chinese economic issues, including both impacts of the world economy on China and the Chinese economy in the world.
