Raj Chetty is the William A. Ackman Professor of Economics at Harvard University.

Chetty’s research combines empirical evidence and economic theory to help design more effective government policies. His work on topics ranging from tax policy and unemployment insurance to education and affordable housing has been widely cited in academia, media outlets, and Congressional testimony.
Jenna Bednar is professor of political science and public policy at the University of Michigan and research professor at the Center for Political Studies, Institute for Social Research. Her research focuses on how collective action builds social goods and the role that government plays in making that collaboration possible.
