Economic Policy

Erik Craft

Erik Craft, is an associate professor economics and philosophy, politics, economics, and law. Kraft can discuss economic policies as well as how voters should consider adopting an economic mindset as they evaluate political party platforms. 

"There are often more creative ways to achieve traditional economic goals that avoid inefficiencies and additional related problems. But one must set aside unrealistic and simple solutions that do not consider unintended consequences," he says. 

"Economists don’t identify the right policies; we identify the tradeoffs and consequences of policies so that voters and policy-makers can make more informed choices, given their values."
