Private Debt Project: Call for Proposals
The Private Debt Project invites proposals for papers related to the study of private debt and its relationship to economic growth and financial stability. Founded in 2016, the Private Debt Project is a project of the Governor’s Woods Foundation dedicated to advancing the study of the macro and micro-economics of private credit in the economy and its political, social, and cultural underpinnings and consequences.
The Project seeks proposals for papers and extended research reports for 2019. Honorarium will range between $1000 and $5000 depending on the length and depth of the proposed research and writing. Proposals for larger special research projects are also welcome. We especially encourage applications from junior and younger scholars doing original research. Among the topics on which we would welcome proposals are the following:
We are both interested in developing stand-alone papers and medium-term research projects.
Please send proposals or inquiries to [email protected]. For more information on The Private Debt Project and its publications, please see privatedebtproject.org.
