JON SANDERS, SENIOR FELLOW FOR REGULATIONS AND THE NEW ECONOMY
Jon Sanders is an economist studying state regulations, that spreading kudzu of invasive government and unintended consequences. As director of regulatory studies and research editor at the John Locke Foundation, Jon gets in the weeds of all kinds of policy areas: energy and electricity policy; occupational licensing; red tape and overregulation; executive orders and overreach; emerging ideas and economic growth; cronyism and other public-choice problems; alcohol policy; poverty and opportunity; and other issues as they arise.
Jon holds a master’s degree in economics with a minor in statistics along with a bachelor of arts degree in English literature and language from North Carolina State University. Jon is a contributing columnist to the American Institute for Economic Research. Prior to joining the research division at JLF, Jon researched issues in higher education for the John William Pope Center for Higher Education Policy (now the James G. Martin Center for Academic Renewal). He has also taught economics as an adjunct instructor for the Tillman School of Business at Mount Olive University and the Poole College of Management at North Carolina State University.
