Private Capital Research Initiative

Grant Year: 2015


Josh Lerner and Leslie Jeng will lead an effort to examine the extent to which the increased use of private capital in financing business activity is affecting the U.S. economy. They will build a database of private capital investments and commission a series of research projects that will make use of the data to explore issues such as the impact of investments on innovation, employment, and other outcomes. The project’s findings will appear in a series of papers.
