Tyler Goodspeed is an adjunct scholar at the Cato Institute and a Junior Fellow in Economics at the University of Oxford. His primary research and teaching interests are in the fields of economic and financial history, with secondary interests in political economy, development, and the history of economic thought. Prior to earning his Ph.D. from Harvard University in May 2014, he received his A.B. from Harvard College, summa cum laude, in 2008, and from 2008-2009 was a Gates Scholar at the University of Cambridge. His first book, Rethinking the Keynesian Revolution, analyzes the debates between John Maynard Keynes and Friedrich Hayek, and considers the relevance of those debates to contemporary macroeconomic theory. Tyler’s current research focuses on the economic history of banking and the political economy of financial regulation, including a book-length study of Scotland’s Ayr Bank crisis of 1772 that earned the Economic History Association’s 2014 Alexander Gerschenkron Prize “for the best dissertation in the economic history of an area outside of the United States or Canada.”
