The Economics Program leads the Center’s work on international economic policy, global economic governance, and the domestic economic foundations of U.S. power. The program is directed by Matthew P. Goodman, CSIS Senior Vice President and Simon Chair in Political Economy.
To illuminate the role of economics in foreign policy and national security and to offer practical economic policy ideas to enhance U.S. and global prosperity and security.
In this effort, the Economics Program focuses on:
- Global economic governance: the players, institutions, and rules and norms that shape international economic affairs.
- U.S. economic statecraft: the strategies, tools, and processes of U.S. international economic policymaking.
- Domestic foundations: economic policies and practices that underpin U.S. competitiveness and the well-being of Americans.
The Economics Program was formerly known as the CSIS Simon Chair in Political Economy.
