The Kem C. Gardner Policy Institute at The University of Utah promotes better decisions through economic understanding and analysis of policies. We prepare economic impact analyses, special economic studies and economic forecasts. We provide objective research and analysis on public policies to help Utah leaders make informed decisions.

We serve as the home to the Economic Club of Utah and co-lead, with the Governor’s Office of Management and Budget, the Utah Economic Council. Together we produce the annual Economic Report to the Governor.

With deep understanding of important Utah industries like energy, health care, real estate, housing and construction, technology, tourism and others we help promote a stronger and more prosperous Utah economy.
