Charles Koch Foundation Grant Helps Expand Duke University’s Center for the History of Political Economy

For decades Duke Professor Bruce Caldwell and his peers have been researching what economic theories and practices of the past can teach economists about the challenges we face today. During that time, Duke’s Center for the History of Political Economy has attracted support from grantmaking organizations including the National Endowment for the Humanities and the Institute for New Economic Thinking. Today, the university announced additional support that will allow the center to expand its work, add faculty, and partner with Duke’s Rubenstein Library to hire a digital librarian to capture the intellectual history of a new generation of thinkers.

Center Director and Duke Research Professor of Economics Bruce Caldwell said, “Duke has long been strong in the history of economics. We’re excited to build on the strength that already exists here and take it to the next level.”
