Press Release

John Tamny Joins FreedomWorks' New Center for Economic Freedom

FreedomWorks today announced that John Tamny will join FreedomWorks and serve as the director of the organization’s Center for Economic Freedom.

The Center for Economic Freedom will have a special focus on promoting policies that get government out of the way and allow Americans to keep more of what they earn, while highlighting the dangers of overregulation and protectionism.

John Tamny will lead the Center for Economic Freedom. John has been the political economy editor at Forbes and the managing editor at RealClearMarkets since 2002. He is an author of two books related to his specialization in economics: Popular Economics: What the Rolling Stones, Downton Abbey, and LeBron James Can Teach You about Economics (Regnery Publishing, 2015) and Who Needs the Fed?: What Taylor Swift, Uber, and Robots Tell Us About Money, Credit, and Why We Should Abolish America's Central Bank (Encounter Books, 2016).

Among other projects, John will begin his time at the Center for Economic Freedom with a weekly Facebook Live called “Not Fake News” to highlight the very real facts about what our federal and state governments are doing to slow our economy and dampen American entrepreneurship.

“John is a brilliant mind and seasoned expert in his field, and we are excited to have him working with us to promote economic freedom,” said FreedomWorks President Adam Brandon. “He is a great addition to our already stellar team, helping us to spread our message for free markets and limited government even further.”

John Tamny said, “FreedomWorks expertly enhances the terms of the U.S. policy discussion, and in doing so is constantly changing the course of policy in Washington for the better. I'm thrilled to add my voice to an organization that is on any short list of Washington's most influential.”

“In the coming years, I'll be publishing various books and hundreds of opinion pieces meant to expand FreedomWorks' already substantial voice. The fight for economic freedom is of singular importance, and I'm excited to be a part of an organization that will continue to advance these freedoms,” Tamny added.
