Gary Galles

BIO

Gary Galles is a professor of economics at Pepperdine University, where he has taught for thirty years. He received his PhD in economics from UCLA in 1988. His research focuses on public finance, public choice (better termed, “the economics of government”), the theory of the firm, the organization of industry, and the role of liberty, including the views of many classical liberals (now called libertarians), echoed by many of America’s founders. In addition to journal articles, he has been involved in many economics textbook projects and has published over a thousand popular articles and opinion pieces. He has made multiple appearances on television and radio programs. His focus is primarily on using economics tools to understand the “real world,” rather than creating theoretically elegant but misleading models divorced from it.
