Excerpt from The Jack News:
Among potential candidates who have not held office, Dr. Jeffrey Miron offers perhaps the most impressive resume. As the head of undergraduate economics at Harvard University, the director of economic policy for the Cato Institute, and the chief economic adviser to Gary Johnson, Miron has a long history of combining both public advocacy and serious academic footwork on behalf of libertarian policies.
Miron piqued some attention and curiosity when he applied for a spot on the party’s platform committee, and was selected by the Libertarian National Committee. He has a unique talent for making a pragmatic, utilitarian case for radical libertarian policies like completely free trade, legalization of hard drugs, and deregulation of labor markets.
He is likely most familiar to libertarians as a result of the “Learn Liberty” video series which were a product of the Institute for Humane Studies. He covers libertarian public policy in a wide range of areas, with a mastery of all the details and nuance of different schools of libertarian thought.
While associated with Cato and the previous Johnson campaigns, Miron himself is a fairly hard-line libertarian on the issues. His advocacy frequently focuses on the case for radical free trade and an end to immigration restrictions, topics that are particularly salient in the era of Donald Trump’s protectionism and nativism.
