Dr. Richard W. Rahn, a senior fellow with the Cato Institute, currently serves as a member of the Board of Directors of the Cayman Islands Monetary Authority ... , Chairman of the Institute for Global Economic Growth, and Chairman of the Advisory Board of the European Center for Economic Growth. In addition, he writes a weekly economic column for The Washington Times which appears in many other newspapers around the world.
He teaches that:
- lower tax rates lead to higher growth because they reduce the disincentives for working and investing 
- "Everyone who has ever taken basic economics should know a lower tax rate on an investment (i.e., the capital-gains tax) will lead a higher rate of return" 
- public school teachers are biased toward the public sector and are anti-business <ref=bio/>
