Throughout his career as an economist, Scott Beaulier has been actively engaged in the policy arena, both within academia and in the public sphere. Under Dr. Beaulier's leadership as Executive Director, the Manuel H. Johnson Center for Political Economy at Troy University has grown into a robust academic center dedicated to studying the impact government policies have on economic growth and individual well-being.

In just three years, Dr. Beaulier recruited seven top-notch Ph.D. economists to campus and expanded the program offerings to include both a major and master of arts in economics. Today, the Center sits as a hot-bed of research, education, and scholarly debate in the Deep South. It regularly hosts lectures from some of the nation's most influential thought-leaders, symposiums, and seminars.

Dr. Beaulier takes his scholarship off campus and into mainstream media through his weekly Birmingham News/Al.com columns, regular contributions to RealClearMarkets, and frequent radio and TV interviews. Dr. Beaulier engages audiences across the nation by speaking at events hosted by trade associations, civic groups, and think tanks, as well as at national conferences.
