Tyler Cowen

This week, Tyler Cowen, the Holbert C. Harris Chair of Economics and general director of the Mercatus Center, was named to Foreign Policy magazine’s list of Top 100 Global Thinkers of 2011. Cowen was recognized for his contributions to discussions on a variety of topics on both his blog, Marginal Revolution, cowritten with Mason economics professor Alex Tabarrok, and in his regular New York Times Economic View columns.

Cowen’s most recent book, “The Great Stagnation,” asserts that the current economic crisis in the United States is structural and that the country is unlikely to see a major increase in economic growth in the near future.

Tyler also nominated “6 Ideas for the Ash Heap of History,” in the December 2011 issue of the magazine.
