Welcome to the Let People Prosper newsletter by me, Vance Ginn, Ph.D.
I hope you will subscribe to my newsletter because I will be publishing it often on issues in the news regarding the economic and fiscal situations of places across the nation. My posts will be from a Christian, classical-liberal perspective with a focus on unlocking poverty to unleash prosperity by limiting the government to its limited constitutional roles.
Who am I?
I am a free-market economist who works to let people prosper. I am the former chief economist at Texas Public Policy Foundation (TPPF) and former associate director for economic policy (“chief economist”) at the White House's Office of Management and Budget. I earned my doctorate in economics at Texas Tech University and have been blessed to have an accomplished career as a policy director and university lecturer with experience in public policy, academia, and government. In these capacities, I have worked to unlock poverty through relational, inclusive changes in institutions that expand opportunities to let people prosper. You can find me on the news or in publications in many media outlets, public policy sites, and academic journals, and have been honored with several awards for my efforts. You can find my work and other information about me on my personal website. Also, check out my Let People Prosper podcast on Apple Podcasts and Spotify.
Why Let People Prosper
An inclusive institutional framework with individual liberty, intact families, robust civil society, competitive capitalism, and a constitutional republic best supports abundant opportunities to mitigate poverty and let people prosper. This prosperity isn’t just material but spiritual, psychological, social, etc. that satisfies human desires. Given this understanding and my experience and research as a free-market economist, I provide trusted views on economies and policies.
