The fact that Donald Trump considered our favored John Allison for Treasury is a nod to free markets and hopefully an indicator of good things to come. The Cato Institute’s manager of sponsor services, Brian Mullis, sent this email, along with a great video of Allison to me yesterday.
I thought you might be interested in a short highlight reel of former Cato Institute president and CEO John Allison’s media tour this week, which followed his discussion of monetary and financial regulatory reforms in a meeting with President-elect Trump and nominee for Treasury secretary Steven Mnuchin. During appearances on every major cable-news network, John’s message focused on the shortcomings of centralized, bureaucratic, and discretionary monetary and financial regulatory systems.
And as the Chairman of the Executive Advisory Council of Cato’s Center for Monetary and Financial Alternatives, John helps guide the Center’s creation of principled, market-based reforms such as higher capital requirements for financial institutions in return for fewer regulations, as well as rules-based monetary policy. The Center’s efforts toward these goals were amplified with John’s recent media exposure in over 50 print and broadcast stories.
