Texas Tech Free Market Institute

In January I left Suffolk University to start the new Free Market Institute at Texas Tech University. I remain affiliated as a Senior Fellow with the Independent Institute and plan to continue my productive relationship with them well into the future. Since I’ve continued to write commentary for Independent some of you might have already noticed my change of academic affiliation in my columns. To learn more about what we’ll be doing at the Free Market Institute check out our new webpage or follow us on Facebook. Particularly, if you are interested in doing graduate work in free market economics be sure to contact us.

Benjamin Powell is Senior Fellow at the Independent Institute and Director of the Free Market Institute and Professor of Economics in the Jerry S. Rawls College of Business Administration at Texas Tech University. His Independent books include Making Poor Nations Rich: Entrepreneurship and the Process of Economic Development, Housing America: Building Out of a Crisis (edited with Randall Holcombe), and The Economics of Immigration: Market-Based Approaches, Social Science, and Public Policy.
