I like the font used in this paper, but don't know its name.

https://www.nber.org/system/files/working_papers/w25136/w25136.pdf

Can someone tell me (1) what is the name of the main font used in the paper, and (2) what is the name of the math font?

Thanks so much.

Cheers

Font in the top (Cover and Abstract) is Times New Roman.

and the rest is URW Palladio, check this page on Font Catalogue for details on setting it up.

  • For clarification (mostly my own, but good for any others reading this: how did you find that? I clicked to inspect the element in Chrome and found only font-family: Roboto, 'Segoe UI', Tahoma, sans-serif; (though a belated check in Firefox revealed Times New Roman — I didn't bother checking other browsers).

  • AdobeReader mentions 26 fonts in all – but not Roboto, Segoe UI, Tahoma, making 11 families in all.

The document seems to have been typeset with \usepackage[sc]{mathpazo} and \usepackage{eurosym}. The key to see this is to notice PazoMath and URWPalladio in the list below.

If I run pdffonts on the mentioned PDF file, I get

Times, Helvetica, Calibri, Verdana, Cambria and Arial are from the embedded images and the initial pages (that has Times in some variation). There are also Computer Modern fonts, probably due to embedded images as well.

The feymr10 font is the Euro symbol from the package eurosym.
