Martin Feldstein Lectures

The Martin Feldstein Lecture is an annual lecture, presented during the NBER Summer Institute in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The lecture, which was initiated in 2009 by the NBER Board of Directors, recognizes Martin Feldstein's transformative contributions as President of the NBER. Feldstein, who became President in 1977 and stepped down in 2008, created the "professional network" model that today characterizes the NBER and has been emulated by a number of other organziations. He also launched the NBER Summer Institute in 1978. The goal of the Feldstein Lecture is to highlight recent economic research that bears on important issues in public policy, and to present this research in a broadly accessible format.
