Tyler Cowen (COW-en) (b. January 21, 1962) occupies the Holbert C. Harris Chair of economics as a professor at George Mason University and is co-owner, with Alex Tabarrok, of the popular economics blog Marginal Revolution. He currently writes the "Economic Scene" column for the New York Times.
Cowen's economic and political ideologies seem to stem largely from his background in the libertarian Austrian School. He has been classified as a "libertarian bargainer" - someone of libertarian ideals who is not so radical that he cannot influence the "currently powerful" (Klein, December 22, 2003).
