Abstract

This is a compendium of fifty-four papers written by distinguished economists in response to an invitation by the National Science Foundation's Directorate for the Social, Behavioral and Economic Sciences (NSF/SBE) to economists and relevant research communities in August 2010 to write white papers that describe grand challenge questions in their sciences that transcend near-term funding cycles and are "likely to drive next generation research in the social, behavioral, and economic sciences." These papers offer a number of exciting and at times provocative ideas about future research agendas in economics. The papers could also generate compelling ideas for infrastructure projects, new methodologies and important research topics.
