Kathryn Waldron



Kathryn Waldron is currently pursuing her Master’s degree in Economics at George Mason University. Her particular research interests include international development and national security.

During her spare time she…wait…you mean there’s such a thing as spare time? Ha! Who knew!”

GMU Economics student. Black belt in Tae Kwon Do. In search of the world’s best chai.

Ronni Mercier


Ronni Mercier graduated from the University of Tampa with a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics and Economics. Leaving the palm trees behind to move to Virginia is still a sensitive topic.

Ronni enjoys yoga, wine, photography, and self-depreciating humor. She is currently a graduate student at George Mason University, seeking a Master’s degree in Economics.

Caskey is poised to reach a national audience through HipHoponmics.

Diego Zuluaga


An aspiring dilettante with a passion for Riesling and 20th century American literature, Diego is a policy analyst at the Cato Institute’s Center for Monetary and Financial Alternatives.

Marc Morris, the man, the myth, the legend. He writes on music, sports, and economics. He hates breathing, eating and drinking. Loves his fiancee, obese cats and the firework that got JPP’s hand.

Oh, and he’s in pursuit of his Master’s in Economics from George Mason University.
