About the Keynes Fund Lecture

The Keynes Fund through the Department of Economics at the University of Cambridge, established in 2012, promotes innovative and path breaking quality research in economics and finance. A key part of the Faculty of Economics, it provides resources for early stage researchers as well as for established academics in Cambridge, with a special emphasis on understanding key distortions that affect market allocations and create inefficiencies, and on finding policy solutions to correct such inefficiencies.

So far, more than 60 research projects have received about two million pounds in total. Research funded by the Keynes Fund has appeared in top peer reviewed journals such as the Economic Journal, the Journal of the European Economic Association, Journal of Public Economics, the Journal of the American Statistical Association, and the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
