Tyler Cowen is an American economist, academic, and writer. He occupies the Holbert C. Harris Chair of economics as a professor at GMU and at the Center for the Study of Public Choice. He is co-author, with Alex Tabarrok, of the popular economics blog Marginal Revolution, which now has over thirty-six million unique visits and was named the top economics blog by the Wall Street Journal. He currently writes the "Economic Scene" column for the New York Times, and he also writes for such publications as The New Republic, The Wall Street Journal, Forbes, Newsweek, and The Wilson Quarterly. Cowen is also general director of the Mercatus Center at George Mason University.

Tyler Cowen recently published his book The Great Stagnation: How America Ate all the Low-Hanging Fruit of Modern History, Got Sick, and Will (Eventually) Feel Better. This book represents his vision for macroeconomics, asks whether innovation has stagnated, and it interprets the past history of U.S. growth and looks at where the country is headed. Within the first week of release it was written up by The Economist, the New York Times, The Washington Post, and numerous other outlets.
