In 1979, Jeffery Miron graduated with a BA in Economics, magna cum laude, at Swarthmore College and five years later earned a Ph.D., also in Economics, from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).
Miron is currently the Senior Lecturer and Director of Undergraduate studies at Harvard University. In the 90's, filled the position of Chairman of the Department of Economics at Boston University.
Miron is highly regarded as the star teacher by the Senior Class at Harvard. In the last five years the pupils has voted him as one of their favourite teachers. His course, A Libertarian Perceptive on Economics and Social Policy, has attracted over eight thousand students in just four years.
The media also find Miron's views highly valuable. He has published over 25 articles in refereed journals and 50 op-eds in the Boston Herald, Boston Business Journal, Boston Globe, CNN.com and may others. His commentary on economic policy has been featured on CNN, CNBC, Bloomberg and Fox Television.
In addition to this Miron, an expert in economics in libertarianism, has studied the effects of drugs criminalisation for over a decade and came to the conclusion that all drugs should be legalized.
Never the one to hold back his views, Miron was one of the 166 economists to sign the letter to congressional leaders in protest of the bailout plan, a response to the global financial crisis in 2008.
Harvard's star lecturer proposed three policies reforms to help the US economy to recover from the financial crisis – they were cutting entitlements, freezing regulations and replacing the existing tax codes with a flat tax on consumption.
