Help Publish the Policy Work of Vedder and Gallaway

What we are wanting to publish:

Help our students with this once in a lifetime experience of publishing the collected Joint Economic Committee Papers of Lowell Gallaway and Richard Vedder

Edited by Joshua C. Hall, Professor of Economics at West Virginia University


Lowell Gallaway and Richard Vedder are both Distinguished Professors of Economics Emeritus at Ohio University in Athens Ohio. As co-authors and separately, they have written hundreds of academic papers in some of the top academic journals in the world such as the American Economic Review and Quarterly Journal of Economics.

In the 1980s, Gallaway and Vedder served as economists for the Joint Economic Committee in Washington D.C. Their relationship with the JEC continued even after they returned to academia, with their writing numerous studies for the JEC in the 1990s.

Their work for the Joint Economic Committee was the best of what scholars engaged with public service should aspire to. It was rigorous while maintaining policy relevance. It was simple without being simplistic. For these reasons, their work for the JEC was both influential at the time and the work that is still available continues to garner scholarly citations.

Unfortunately, while these government reports are in the public domain, many of them are not publicly available. With your help, we’d like to digitize hard copies of these papers and combine them into a book to be made available on Amazon and as a free download on our site.
