Tax Foundation Welcomes Two New Economists
Malm and Pomerleau Augment State, Federal Teams
Washington, D.C., January 16, 2013—The Tax Foundation this week welcomes two new economists, Elizabeth Malm and Kyle Pomerleau, to its policy staff. Malm will focus on state-level policy and Pomerleau will research federal tax issues.
“We’re very happy to be bringing these two new economists on board,” said Tax Foundation President Scott Hodge. “During a time of extraordinary ferment on tax and fiscal policy, we need as many talented minds as possible, and Liz and Kyle will both be valuable team members in the policy debates ahead of us.”
Elizabeth Malm is an Economist with the Center for State Tax Policy at the Tax Foundation. She earned a BS in Economics and BA in History while at the University of Wyoming, and holds an MA in Economics from Duke University. During her tenure at Duke, her research interests included applied microeconomics, mechanism design, and competitive pricing in health insurance markets.
Before moving to Washington D.C. and joining the Tax Foundation staff full time, Malm co-authored, with Gerald Prante, the Annual State-Local Tax Burden Ranking report. Her work has appeared in several states and many news publications, including Reuters, Yahoo News, MSNBC.com, Chicago Tribune, The Hill, Crain’s Chicago Business, and the International Business Times. Malm also previously worked as a Tax Foundation summer intern.
Kyle Pomerleau is an Economist for the Tax Foundation’s Center for Federal Tax Policy. Before coming to Washington, D.C., he was a research associate at the Maine Heritage Policy Center in Portland, Maine, where his research and writing on welfare policy became instrumental in the state’s recent welfare reforms. Previously, he was an intern at the Americans for Tax Reform Foundation and the Cato Institute’s Center for Educational Freedom.
Pomerleau holds a BA in Political Science and History from the University of Southern Maine and is currently pursuing his MPP at the Georgetown Public Policy Institute. He has written on a variety of topics including state and federal taxation, government spending, employment, welfare policy, and education policy.
The Tax Foundation is a nonpartisan research organization that has monitored fiscal policy at the federal, state and local levels since 1937. To schedule an interview, please contact Richard Borean, the Tax Foundation’s communications associate, at 202-464-5120 or email@example.com.
