The Center for Research on the Wisconsin Economy, in the Department of Economics at the University of Wisconsin – Madison, supports and disseminates economic policy research, with a particular focus on the Wisconsin economy and state-level economic policy issues.
A main goal is to better understand the economic outcomes and the impacts of policies at the state-level, and make economic research accessible to policymakers, businesses, and community groups in Wisconsin and around the nation. The Center is a crucial link tying UW-Madison to the broader policy and business community.
CROWE plays a unique role in the state and nationally, providing objective economic research to support economic development and policy evaluation for important state-level issues. While CROWE focuses on Wisconsin, its research draws on lessons from other states. CROWE fills a need in raising the level of policy discussion, developing new ideas and initiatives for economic policy.
As part of CROWE’s effort to support research and engage community groups, the Center also hosts regular conferences and workshops on economic policy issues, including both academic researchers and the broader policy community.
The Center for Research on the Wisconsin Economy (CROWE), in the Department of Economics at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, is excited to announce that CROWE Director, Noah Williams, has been named the inaugural Curt and Sue Culver Professor of Economics.
