They write thousands of articles each year ranging from op-eds in major U.S. newspapers to in-depth policy studies and books. They appear frequently on television on CNBC, Fox News, CNN, and PBS, and on the opinion-editorial pages of the Wall Street JournalWashington TimesInvestor’s Business Daily, and many of the nation’s largest circulation daily newspapers. They also testify frequently before Congress and state legislatures.
