Evan Soltas


I am an incoming PhD student in economics at MIT. My current research is in the fields of public economics and political economy.

From 2016 to 2018, I was a graduate student in economics at Oxford on the Rhodes Scholarship. I studied economics as well as statistics and machine learning at Princeton as an undergraduate.

My popular writing has appeared in Bloomberg, The Financial Times, The New York Times, The Washington Post, and Vox. From 2012 to 2014, I co-wrote the daily “Wonkbook” public-policy newsletter with Ezra Klein. The archives of my blog are available here.
