Selected Papers Series

The Selected Papers series is published in grateful recognition of those alumni and friends who support the University of Chicago Booth School of Business. The long-running series features current, notable research of note by Chicago faculty.

In March 2004, the Selected Papers series was combined with Capital Ideas, a publication that features topical research in a chosen business discipline. Please see the Capital Ideas website for the latest issues.
