About the Paulson Institute:
Our Mission
The Paulson Institute is a non-partisan, independent “think and do tank” dedicated to fostering a US-China relationship that serves to maintain global order in a rapidly evolving world.
Our Approach
Our focus on US-China is dictated by the reality that it is the most consequential bilateral relationship in the world. We often operate at the intersection of economics, financial markets, environmental protection, and policy advocacy, in part by promoting balanced and sustainable economic growth.
We produce leading analysis and intellectual products to decode China’s political economy. We advocate for market and nature-based solutions to climate change and environmental conservation. We work with financial markets and international financial institutions to implement green lending standards. We convene thought leaders to generate new thinking and to help build a new framework on US-China policy.
Who We Are
Founded in 2011 by former Treasury Secretary Henry M. Paulson, Jr., the Institute is based in Chicago with offices in Washington and Beijing. Our diverse, multicultural staff brings deep experience to our work from the highest levels of business, government, conservation, policy and research.
