Yale has announced the formation of a new research enterprise, the Tobin Center for Economic Policy at Yale, named for the late James Tobin, iconic faculty member and Nobel laureate. The center will advance rigorous, evidence-based research intended to define and inform policy debate.

Alumni, parents, and friends of the university have contributed more than $60 million to establish the Tobin Center, including an anonymous lead gift of $30 million. Anita and Josh Bekenstein ’80 and Amandine and Stephen Freidheim ’86 are among the top donors making gifts to endow the center and fund construction of a new building to house it.
