Berkeley Roundtable on the International Economy


The Berkeley Roundtable on the International Economy (BRIE) is a small, interdisciplinary research project at the University of California at Berkeley. For nearly fifteen years, BRIE has worked with academics, business leaders, and scholars from around the world from such wide-ranging disciplines as urban planning, political science, economics, and engineering to consider the real-world interactions of technology, markets, and economies and to formulate path-breaking positions that challenge conventional economic policy-making. BRIE stands today as one of the leading intellectual voices debating government policy and business strategy.
