As the first Jesse Helms Center Free Enterprise Fellow, I explore important American economic and free enterprise issues through research, presentations and opinion editorials. My recent studies can be read on the Jesse Helms Center website and can be read through this blog. In addition to my work with the center, I’m a professor of economics at Wingate University. I received my Undergraduate and Master’s degrees in economics from Grove City College and the University of North Carolina, respectively. I obtained my Ph.D. in public policy from George Mason University in 2004.
In 2012, I was named a Fulbright Scholar and spent seven months living and teaching economics at a university in Chisinau, Moldova for seven months. My project, entitled “The Economic and Political Systems of Eastern Europe and the Developing World” was an exciting opportunity to delve into the economics of Eastern Europe with my family by my side.
I am available for media commentary and interviews. Please email Lindsay@jessehelmscenter.org to inquire.
