Rich States, Poor States

Mr. Jonathan Williams

Director
Center of State Fiscal Policy Task Force
American Legislative Exchange Council 

 

All across the nation, states are looking for ways to boost their economies and become more economically competitive. Each state confronts this task with a set of policy decisions unique to their own situation. However, not all state policies lead to economic prosperity and while some states achieve economic prosperity, others continue to struggle in their efforts to revive their economies. 

 

Fortunately, the United States, with its "50 laboratories of democracy," provides us with empirical evidence to track exactly which policies lead to economic prosperity and which fail to deliver. Rich States, Poor States is an annual economic competitiveness study authored by Dr. Arthur Laffer, Stephen Moore of the Wall Street Journal, and Jonathan Williams, Director of the Tax and Fiscal Policy Task Force at the American Legislative Exchange Council. 

 

Jonathan Williams is the director of the Center of State Fiscal Policy Task Force at the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC,) where he works with state policymakers, congressional leaders, and members of the private sector to develop fiscal policy solutions for the states. Prior to joining ALEC, Williams served as staff economist at the nonpartisan Tax Founation, authoring numerous tax policy studies. Williams' work has appeared in many publications, including The Wall Street Journal, Forbes, and Investor's Business Daily.
