As an economics writer and policy analyst, Stephen Moore shares his views and insights with his audiences. Since 2005, he has been a member of the editorial board and senior economics writer for The Wall Street Journal, currently dividing his time between Washington, D.C., and New York City. A frequent contributor to the Journal over the years, Moore focuses on economic issues that include budget, tax, and monetary policy.
Until 2004, Moore was the founder and former president of the Club for Growth, which raises funds for political candidates who favor free-market economic policies. Prior to joining The Wall Street Journal, he was president of the then newly organized Free Enterprise Fund.
For many years, Moore has served as a senior economist on the Congressional Joint Economic Committee, as a budget expert for the Heritage Foundation, and as a senior economics fellow at the Cato Institute. Through his Cato Institute affiliation, he has published dozens of studies on federal and state tax and budget policy. Moore was also a consultant to the National Economic Commission in 1987 and research director for President Reagan’s Commission on Privatization.
A frequent radio and television guest, Moore is the author of five books, including The End of Prosperity: How Higher Taxes Will Doom the Economy—If We Let It Happen; It’s Getting Better All the Time: The 100 Greatest Trends of the Last Century; and Bullish on Bush: How the Ownership Society Will Make America Stronger. An alumnus of the University of Illinois, Moore also holds a master’s degree in economics from George Mason University.
The Deeds Symposium was created in 1982 at the University of Hartford to provide a forum for the discussion of free-market principles. Program speakers are internationally known participants in the continuing discussion of free enterprise and government.
