Dr. Stephen Miller
During the 2020-2021 academic year, Dr. Stephen Miller offered timely research and commentary on the COVID-19 pandemic. His analysis focused on the empirical relationship between cases, hospitalizations, and deaths in the United States, and how that relationship varied by region and season. He spoke on the topic in a variety of venues including two presentations in the Creighton University Institute for Economic Inquiry Webinar series, a talk on COVID policy tradeoffs for the Hammond Institute for Free Enterprise (Lindenwood University) Langenberg Speaker Series, two appearances on the Freedom Adventure Podcast with David Forsyth, and presentations at the Association for Private Enterprise (APEE) Conference and the Center’s conference on Reopening the Economy in the Age of COVID in Birmingham.
Dr. Miller also spoke at Western Carolina University Center for the Study of Free Enterprise (CSFE) Townhall on Community, Policy, and COVID in May, and was a CSFE Faculty Affiliate for the 2020-2021 Academic Year.

He also published an article on the variations in regional COVID impact in the Journal of Private Enterprise and eight articles on the topic for the American Institute for Economic Research.
On the topic of economic inequality, Miller’s co-edited book (with Dr. G.P. Manish) Capitalism and Inequality was published by Routledge this year, which included Miller’s chapter on the problems with using income distribution as a measure of inequality. With Troy MA graduate Vitor Melo (now a Ph.D. student at Clemson) he is currently researching the relationship between rent-seeking and changes in income distribution and has presented on that research at the CSFE’s Scaled-Up Seminar, the Public Choice Society Meetings, APEE, and research seminars at the Center and the Free Market Institute at Texas Tech University.
