Hi, I'm Brink Lindsey, and back in September I joined the Kauffman Foundation as a senior scholar in research and policy. After a few months of getting my bearings, I figure it's time to hop back on the blogging horse.
Let me start off with just a little background. Before coming to Kauffman, I was affiliated for many years with the Cato Institute -- as director of regulatory studies, adjunct scholar, director of the Center for Trade Policy Studies, and most recently vice president for research. Although my work ranged broadly at Cato, the subject that has always been at the center of my intellectual interests is economic growth -- including both its underlying causes and its broader social consequences. So it makes sense that, even though I'm still new here, working at Kauffman and writing for a blog called Growthology feel like coming home.
Substantive posting to follow shortly.
