The Kevin Albert Family Fund supports research in applied microeconomics. Researchers affiliated with the Fund engage in research addressing a wide variety of important issues including: Changes in the “returns” to education, the effects of economic crises in developing countries; the effects of welfare reform; the efficacy of job training programs and early intervention programs for disadvantaged children; the reasons for rising health insurance costs; effects of government regulation in the market for services; social security reform; rising inequality and the economic consequences of changes in the family. The Fund also supports speaker series and special events of interest to applied microeconomists.
