WASHINGTON, April 25, 2012 — Hudson Institute, the future-oriented policy research organization based in Washington, announces that Tim Kane has joined the Institute as Chief Economist and will play a key role in Hudson’s new Innovation Project.

“Tim Kane’s focus on growth, innovation, workforce, and defense economics makes him the ideal economist to lead our impressive research team,” says Hudson President and CEO Kenneth R. Weinstein.

Tim Kane comes to Hudson from the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation, where as Senior Scholar he established the growthology.org blog and initiated the annual Economics Bloggers Forum. Kane organized a quarterly survey of top economics bloggers, which he will continue to produce as a Hudson Institute report.

Kane’s commentary has appeared in the New York Times, USA Today, and other outlets. He often provides analysis on CNN, CNBC, ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX, MSNBC, Bloomberg, and PBS‘ Nightly Business Report. With a track record of successful entrepreneurial startups, his research on job creation has been widely cited, and his forthcoming book, Bleeding Talent (Palgrave Macmillan), will examine entrepreneurial leadership in the military. His online Hudson biography is available here: http://www.hudson.org/Kane.

The former Director of International Economics at The Heritage Foundation, Kane was the lead author of the Heritage/Wall Street Journal“Index of Economic Freedom.” As a former intelligence officer in the U.S. Air Force, he served two tours of duty in Asia. Kane earned a bachelor’s degree from the U.S. Air Force Academy and a doctorate in economics from the University of California San Diego.
