John M. Olin Professor of Economics, Walter Williams is inarguably the most ardent free market economist in the world. Potential graduate students interested in free market economics should consider his chairmanship. A well known author, Dr. Williams, recently published his 6th book, More Liberty Means Less Government: Our Founders Knew This Well. He also writes a weekly, nationally syndicated column. Dr. Williams has served as a Fellow at the Hoover Institution on War, Revolution, and Peace as well as at the Ford Foundation.
Recently Tyler Cowen has won acclaim for his work on the economics of fame and for his work showing that free markets promote art. His most recent books are In Praise of Commercial Culture and Risk and Business Cycles: New and Old Austrian Perspectives.
