Edward M. (Ned) Gramlich was among the most productive policy economists of his day–a day stretching from the mid-1960s until his death in 2007. In addition to producing academic (often practical) work relevant to dozens of policy issues, he was an accomplished administrator and leader. He was founding dean of the Gerald R. Ford School of Public Policy at the University of Michigan, and he was a member of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve.

On the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the Ford School (which of course had a different name 100 years ago), the Ford School and Federal Reserve Bank host "Honoring Ned Gramlich and the Importance of Policy Research," a conference that brings together leading practitioners of public policy analysis to illuminate current issues in the spirit of Ned's guiding principle: that good analysis is essential to making and implementing good policy.
Speakers include Betsey Stevenson (keynote), a member of President Obama's Council of Economic Advisers; four former directors of the Congressional Budget Office; and panelists and moderators from a dozen prestigious organizations.
