Penn Institute for Economic Research
Cutting Edge Research on COVID-19 Economics from the University of Pennsylvania's Economics Faculty
The particular strength of our Department in Health Economics and its connection to macroeconomics and empirical microeconomics pays off. Our faculty look at all aspects of the pandemic from measurement to policy, to long run effects and to many other related issues.
The Martha and Jonathan Cohen Distinguished Visitors Program was introduced in 2003. This program aims to bring to the University of Pennsylvania outstanding scholars in all areas of economics; to give public lectures, including the annual Elias B. Cohen lecture, and to interact individually with the Penn Economics community, including both students and faculty. To date, more than 30 prominent economists have visited Penn, thanks to this program, which is funded with generous gifts from Martha and Jonathan Cohen.
