The William E. Simon Chair in Political Economy, held by Matthew P. Goodman, examines current issues in international economic policy, with a particular focus on the Asia Pacific.

The William E. Simon Chair in Political Economy leads the Center’s work on global economic growth, governance, and statecraft, with a particular focus on the dynamic Asia-Pacific region. Under the direction of Matthew P. Goodman, the Chair explores a broad range of international economic policy questions, covering macroeconomics and finance, trade and investment, competitiveness, and resource issues. It also examines issues, actors, and institutions in global economic governance, including the role of the G-20, institution building in the Asia Pacific, and evolving international economic rules and norms. And it looks at how governments craft foreign economic policy at a time when international relations are increasingly defined by the pursuit of economic might.
