About the Institute for Macroeconomic & Policy Analysis


The Institute for Macroeconomic & Policy Analysis (IMPA) at American University is a new home for research on the macroeconomic effects of policy interventions, powered by the IMPA macroeconomic policy model and our team of academic experts and policy practitioners. Grounded in contemporary economics research, the IMPA model emphasizes economic realities that existing models ignore or underestimate: income and wealth inequality, the widespread prevalence of market power in labor and goods markets, productive public capital, and heterogeneity among firms and sectors in the economy.

IMPA is proud to work closely with partners including the Initiative for Policy Dialogue at Columbia University and the American University Department of Economics.
