Brookings Establishes Hutchins Center on Fiscal and Monetary Policy; David Wessel to Direct
December 4, 2013,
Today, Brookings announces the establishment of the Hutchins Center on Fiscal and Monetary Policy, which will focus on the important roles of and interplay between fiscal and monetary policy and will bring together the best new evidence and analysis from the research community with the informed, practical perspectives of the business community and policymakers. David Wessel, Wall Street Journal columnist and New York Times best-selling author, will serve as the center's founding director. The center's creation has been made possible by the generous support of Glenn Hutchins, vice chairman of the Brookings Board of Trustees, whose $10 million grant from The Hutchins Family Foundation will underwrite the center's operational activities during its first five years as well as provide ongoing endowment support.
