The Carnegie-Rochester Conference on Public Policy was initiated in the early 1970's through the efforts of the Bradley Policy Research Center at the William E. Simon School of Business Administration at the University of Rochester and the Center for the Study of Public Policy at Carnegie Mellon University. Under the leadership of the late Karl Brunner (University of Rochester) and Allan Meltzer (Carnegie Mellon University) the Conference developed into a semi-annual event held in April in Rochester and November in Pittsburgh.
The principal objectives of the Conferences are (a) to stimulate policy relevance and empirical research in economic science, (b) to encourage interchange of scientific ideas among analysts with different approaches, and (c) to generate greater understanding by academic economists of practitioner's environments.
Each conference is organized around a particular theme or topic with papers prepared by leading scholars with expertise in the area. Participants are united by their interest in the issues discussed and by their belief that analysis, evidence, and informed discussion have lasting effects on the public and its institutions.
