Becker Friedman Institute Working Papers Series

Sharing research in progress—and refining it through rigorous discussion and debate—is a hallmark of scholarship at the University of Chicago.

The Institute's Working Paper series disseminates current research in economics to encourage comments and discussion. We welcome submissions from University of Chicago faculty and affiliated researchers, including visiting scholars and those presenting at institute-sponsored events. Papers from others on topics related to our research initiatives and conferences may be considered.

Papers are posted as part of our series on the Social Sciences Research Network (SSRN), on IDEAS/RePEc, and here on this site.
