Welcome to David Logan!
June 16, 2011
We are excited to welcome David S. Logan as a new economist at the Tax Foundation; his research and writing will focus on federal and state tax issues, including tax expenditures, the corporate income tax, subsidies and international competitiveness.
Before joining the Tax Foundation, Logan researched tax policy at the Brookings Institution under William Gale in the Urban-Brookings Tax Policy Center. His research has spanned federal and state tax topics including financial transactions taxes, historical fiscal consolidations drivers, and the value-added tax.
Logan’s other research interests include public finance, welfare economics, and applied game theory. He holds a bachelor’s degree from Northwestern University, an MM from the University of Cincinnati and an MBA from Washington University in St. Louis, where he recently completed his first year in Olin Business School’s Ph.D. program in business economics.
David Logan joins fellow economist William McBride as a recent addition to the Tax Foundation roster of economists and analysts.
We’re very happy to welcome David to the team. This is an exciting time to bring on a new economist, with an increasingly strong push for comprehensive tax reform coming from policymakers at the federal level and elected leaders of both major parties.
